Museum at Campbell River


Campbell River’s award-winning museum is not to be missed. See, hear, and touch our coastal history. Explore the vibrant and contemporary exhibits of First Nations cultures, sit behind the wheel of an early logging truck, step aboard a float house raft, and learn about the early days of recreational and commercial fishing. View the film about the destruction of Ripple Rock in the 30-seat vintage theatre. Browse through the Museum Gift Shop, which features First Nations carvings and jewelry, local art, and books about the coast. Open Year-round.
