  • Beautiful exhibition about the culture of the original inhabitants of the area and the development of the region. Very beautiful masks, clothing and utensils, unfortunately may not be photographed. Highlight is a narration/performance with beautiful masks. Also the movie about blowing up of Ripple Rock is interesting to see. Really worth to visit. A pity that there is no CafĂ© at the museum.

  • So much to see. The write ups are mostly from a personal perspective but also they have facts, which makes it much easier to read and remember. The displays are well thought out. Although I did find the lighting was kinda dark, but it hasn't stopped me from returning. Also locals are free ( donations are welcomed).
  • Beautifully curated museum. Awesome gift shop. Great value for money.
  • Decent museum showing history of Campbell River. Can rent rooms for parties. Prices are a bit higher than you'd like to see. Some gift shop items have insultingly high prices.
  • Great place to spend some time.Very friendly staff.Interactive and educational
  • No visit to the area should miss this opportunity for learning, either the history of colonialism meeting the First Nations or the storytelling of those people. Well worth the time for people who wish to know more.
