  • This is a gem of a museum. Historic buildings full of treasures. Lots of great events. Don't miss their Farmers Market on Friday evening from five to eight throughout the summer. Take a class at their Urban Farm School. This place is full of surprises!
  • The museum itself is quite small, and not very well equipped. One lighting array was flickering the whole time I visited, which I found distracting. But the heritage buildings around the museum are quite interesting. I liked that everything wasn't completely roped off, so you could actually sit in the church pews, touch the desks, etc.
  • Been visiting Parksville for years and hardly ever see it actually open, but it's a fun stop if it is open.
  • Very cool collection of buildings from the area.
