The museum also operates the local visitor information centre for the region. We have both exhibits in the main museum building and around the grounds. In the Summer we are open 7 days a week. In the off season we are closed Mondays and most Stat holidays. We also usually are closed over Christmas and the first week of January. There is a touch screen system outside the main entrance for after hour accommodation inquiries and maps for pick-up after hours.The museum holds various special event during the year, has a gift shop with local arts & crafts, plus can do special meals for pre-booked tour groups.

“Super helpful staff at Visitor's Center”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2013

We picnicked on the grounds of the museum/visitor's center and were very impressed with the tourist information provided at the visitor's center. The staff drew us maps to get to local attractions and warned us about high tides impeding certain trails. An excellent respite before exploring Sooke.

“Pleasant Surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2013

Terrific regional museum. Best part it is free by donation. Lots of genuine artifacts and stories of the locals and their exploits. Great staff helped out with things to do in the region. A great stop of interest.

“Nice to walk around.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2013

Nice area to walk around & see some of the local history. It's to bad they don't cover some of the old machinery in order to preserve it better. My family enjoyed visiting.

Worth paying for the tour round the cottage next door provided by someone in costume - very professional.
