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.

This museum will tell you every thing you need to know about the history and origins of the wonderful city and community of Campbell River. If you are a visitor this is a "must see" unless, of course, you are visiting "The Salmon Capital of the World" just to fish!
