This museum boasts a variety of displays showing various aspects of the area. We visited an interactive exhibit on some of the Canadian polar expeditions that children would enjoy. A recreation of a coal mine hall lets you imagine that time. We looked at a small exhibit on the timber industry and one of the docents provided a lot of interesting background as he had worked for a timber company for 28 years. An exhibit on First Nation people was informative. And a high cushioned stool shaped like a Nanaimo bar, description of bathtub races, and an old schoolroom were amusing. The gift shop is very open and easy to browse with a range of prices and variety of items.
