  • A wonderful local museum! Well executed space, lots to see and explore for a small-town place! The volunteers are all super friendly and love to chat or give you more history on the displays. Entry is by donation, suggested is a $5 minimum. Stroller/wheelchair accessibility is available at their side/back entrance - just ask! A nice little gem to stop in and check out when you're strolling the Sidney strip. :)
  • 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.
  • A nice little spot you can learn about the history of Saanich and Sidney. It will take between 1 and 2 hours. Attmitance by donation.
  • I was surprised with the interesting Lego displays. Enjoyed them along with the history of the Sidney area. Worth stopping in.
  • One of Sidney's hidden gems. Well worth the visit.
