Another great family day camp spring break activity brought to you by the incredible staff at the Surrey museum! Really enjoyed looking at some of the historical artefacts from your temporary exhibit of Disneyland. The kids enjoy doing the scavenger hunt up in the main gallery. Very excited to see the renovations

There is always something going on at the museum or something cool to see. We popped in this afternoon. We were greeted on entry and asked if we had been before and if we needed any explanations of anything. The kids received a scavenger hunt they could do as we explored. We checked out the kid area which is focused... More

Ample parking, admission by donation. Nice museum mainly depicting the early days in Surrey and how the city developed, including agriculture and community groups. A very good interpretive area for younger school aged children that empathizes recycling and sustainable.

I visited Surrey Museum in the company of a school field trip and up until now, I can still visualize all the great artifacts that reflected the lives of the people that shaped the history of Surrey BC., the different exhibitions, and events. There are different programs to get a person engaged. The staff are very helpful. It is also... More

When we first arrived with our two granddaughters I thought they would be bored. The children's section proved very entertaining with many hands-on environmental exhibits. Lots of levers and buttons to push. The adult side is a larger section and has many small exhibits but nonetheless interesting. Admission is by donation.

Myself and boyfriend decided to come here wanting to know more about the area we were staying in and the Surrey Museum was really awesome! It is smaller however it is filled with rich history and information about Surrey and Canada. We loved the exhibits, plus they have a child friendly area that is really cool to check out even...

Just visited this morning and had a blast. Wasn't sure what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised. With a toddler under 2 and a newborn it was a perfect activity. We took a quick buzz through the museum part and headed over to the kids centre which was full of things to explore. While there were many parts geared... More
