With so many museums and art galleries scattered throughout the region, there are so many ways to learn about the incredible history of the Comox Valley

Explore the cultural history of the K’ómoks People for a fascinating glimpse into the First Nations culture, relive the past at our local palaeontology centre offering an amazing historical snapshot of the region thousands of years ago, dive into the history of early pioneering life, or take flight and learn about the local aviation history.

As a history buff, I love the variety and abundance of places to learn about the region's history. From Cumberland's coal mining past to the stories and lessons of the K'omoks First Nation, each museum offers its own lens into the fabric of what made the region what it is today.
