Courtenay & District Museum

The Courtenay and District Museum and Palaeontology Centre has a mandate to preserve the cultural and natural heritage of the area.

For over 45 years we’ve been keen about the natural and cultural heritage of the breathtaking Comox Valley, located on the shores of the Strait of Georgia – and we like to show it off.

Are we serious about what we do? You bet – science, academic research, interpretation, preservation – and having fun!

Be our guest to find out why the Comox Valley – past and present, is one of the most plentiful places on earth. Take a fossil tour and travel 80 million years back in time; browse our galleries to delve into the stories that make our history come alive.

The museum welcomes visitors from around the world throughout the year.
