This museum is about the area of Campbell River and the First Nations who inhabit(ed) this part of Vancouver Island. Really presents interesting things in a fascinating way. Not too big, but very complete. Do not miss the movie about the removal of Ripple rock.

For a small community, this museum has it all - something for everyone. And it doesn't take all day to see the whole thing!

This place has an amazing native mask collection that is narrated and tells indigenous legends. For a small museum it has an incredible array of historic material of the region including old film clips of the largest peacetime explosion until recent times of Ripple Rock. Also the gift shop has a wonderful collection of native jewelry and artwork. Well worth spending a few hours.

A true gem. The exhibits are wonderfully laid out, with appropriate information. The 'movies' are great!
