  • For a smaller museum, this is excellent. There are several areas where the children can actually touch/use things. We had people from age 5 up to age 72 in our group and all had fun.

  • I only went in to get a map of Campbell River, but the helpful lady in the gift shop convinced me to take a look in the museum. I was amazed and surprised at how good it was. The First Nations displays, with many historical artifacts, were especially fascinating to me. All the exhibits give an excellent history of how Campbell River came to be. The only minor quibble I have is that the glue on a few of the signs seem to have separated and the pictures have bubbled up. Some of have curled up edges too.
  • It is what it is. The content is fishing and logging related. But the short film on the Ripple Rock explosion us kind of cool
  • Richly developed little museum had me captivated for hours
  • I was absolutely amazed at the quality of the displays of this Museum, not to mention the courteous service and magnificent view!! I have visited a few times now, and have been impressed each and every time. I never tire of the artifacts and displays in the main gallery, but have also very much enjoyed the temporary exhibits, which are varied and unique. The staff is always warm, friendly and eager to make sure my experience is a positive one. I know this museum has a group of volunteers who have also provided me excellent service on more than one occasion. I have even stopped in to the museum gift shop when I have needed a gift for a special occasion, and have been pleased with the selection and quality of their wares. I would not hesitate to recommend this Museum!!!
  • Wonderful displays
