  • Took my daughter to the Lego exhibit, and for such a small museum, they did a great job of packing in the models. We will definitely be back to see other exhibits. The museum is run by donation. Suggested donation is $5 per person which is very reasonable. Bring some change for the kids. As you often find in donation driven venues like this, they have a coin drop game. My daughter loved the Lego as well as the more traditional museum exhibits, model train, miniature mill, etc.
  • facinating museum with artifacts about the history of Sidney and area.
  • This hidden gem of a historical museum has ever changing, monthly exhibits and year-round displays on the history of the peninsula, and, running from january to the end of march, one of Vancouver Islands biggest and only annual LEGO shows! A bonus is that there is no entry fee, but they gladly accept donations.
