Real life exhibits with interesting local facts. Videos and presentations are very informative and present history in a unique way. The gift shop has good prices, authentic indigenous jewelery and crafts, and items that are not typical souvenirs.

Recently visited the Campbell River Museum with my family. Impressed by the quality of the displays and artifacts. Definitely worth a look. They have an excellent video showing how Ripple Rock was blasted back in the 1950's.

The video of the masks was my favourite. There is a lot of history to learn about Campbell River. There is also another video about the rock explosion which is really interesting. Great family spot
