This was a pleasant hands on small museum to take your grandkids through. The displays are plentiful, many protected from little hands but available to learn about, there is an engine and power display outside with some hands on and again upstairs the children can learn and experience many of the past and history

Such a little gem! Discover the origins of the community that is now Qualicum Beach and see how the first residents lived and worked. So many interesting things to see in a relatively small space. Enjoyed the videos! Thank you!

We stopped her for a couple of hours whilst doing some family research. The volunteers could not have been more courteous or helpful. And for such a small local museum, such a wealth of history and information - thank you!!

A funky little museum well worth a visit. The brick powerhouse building has a great collection of radio equipment from spark coils to "modern" Heathkits; also the town's original diesel generator.
