Locals display there personal art and craft from wood and silver. Actual steam donkeys and fishing trollers are on display outside to bring out those... More

This museum will tell you every thing you need to know about the history and origins of the wonderful city and community of Campbell River. If you are a visitor this is a "must see" unless, of course, you are visiting "The Salmon Capital of the World" just to fish!
