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

Good wet weather activity for a couple of hours. A brief insight to the local history but involves lots of video watching to understand fully.

Worth spending a couple of hours in rainy (or even sunny) weather. Take the time to go into the theatres and read the explanations with the exhibits.

This museum is lovingly dedicated to our local history, from the loggers steam donkey that is occasionally 'fired up' to the beautiful fish boat "moored" outside and about which many lovely stories as to its former Japanese owner, its confiscation, restoration to the former owner,...More
