Description

The Parksville Museum is located at Craig Heritage Park in Parksville British Columbia. Aside from the wonderful array of historical artifacts located in the main building, the site also includes 8 heritage buildings that serve as a window into the life of early Parksville settlers. In the summer we have our Friday night Farmers' & Artisan Market with live blacksmith demos (Friday, May 26th - Sept. 15th, 2017), picnic tables for a picturesque picnics and scavenger hunts for the kids -- all of which ensure a fun, relaxing and informative day with the family! In winter the main museum building is open for a browse through our exhibits. Admission by donation. Summer hours: Open 7 days a week from 10:00am-5:00pm. Winter hours: Open Tuesday - Saturday from 11 AM - 3 PM.
