Very good display and informative staff/volunteers. The kids ares is great fun, I do hope they continue to get cool stuff like traveling exhibits (Lego/fashion/spot the fake) we go to this museum many times throughout the year, and love their Spring Break family camps!

When we first arrived with our two granddaughters I thought they would be bored. The children's section proved very entertaining with many hands-on environmental exhibits. Lots of levers and buttons to push. The adult side is a larger section and has many small exhibits but nonetheless interesting. Admission is by donation.

Myself and boyfriend decided to come here wanting to know more about the area we were staying in and the Surrey Museum was really awesome! It is smaller however it is filled with rich history and information about Surrey and Canada. We loved the exhibits, plus they have a child friendly area that is really cool to check out even...

We love going to the Surrey Museum. We have been a number of times. We always discover something new. The latest kids exhibit is very interesting too.

Just visited this morning and had a blast. Wasn't sure what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised. With a toddler under 2 and a newborn it was a perfect activity. We took a quick buzz through the museum part and headed over to the kids centre which was full of things to explore. While there were many parts geared... More

The museum is not huge, but it is has a fun collection showcasing the history of the region. Surrey has changed so much and they try to capture that in their exhibits (and do so quite well). There is a whole wing for kids that has exhibits on sustainability that is fun and interesting. Plus, it's free!

Surrey has a history going back over 130 years. You will see all of this in the Surrey Museum. Check with them for children's activities and special events in the community. Not to be missed.

Located in Cloverdale, the museum offers the opportunity to learn about local history about the First Nations people to urban development today. In the traditional exhibit part of the museum there is Rodeo memorabilia, vintage vehicles, farming equipment, and First Nations artifacts. Until December, 2016; there is a small Kids Gallery exhibit on display. It is an interactive display on... More

Small children's gallery with interactive exhibits. Nice gallery showing local history. Kids were given a scavenger hunt to encourage them to explore. Very well done for local museum. Admission is currently sponsored and by donation.
