Alberni Valley Museum


“this is one of Vancouver Island’s best community museums” – Lonely Planet

Located in the heart of Port Alberni, the Alberni Valley Museum, reflects the richly diverse past of the area, with a large collection of artefacts linked to First Nations culture, local and industrial history, and folk art. The Alberni Valley Museum uses a unique Visible Storage system to make the entire collection available to the visitor at all times — along with the information, in easy to use catalogue books. The Museum presents an exciting and varied program of temporary exhibits each year, plus we offer challenging hands-on school programs and a range of public programs. There is something for everyone to discover, or rediscover, at this impressive local museum.
