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.

A professional performing arts centre in the heart of the Comox Valley, the Sid Williams Theatre is one of the busiest venues of its size in British Columbia. The auditorium has just over 500 seats, including a 140-seat balcony and accessibility platform. The theatre lounge is fully licensed, offering refreshments and snacks prior to a performance and during intermission. While the building is owned by the City of Courtenay, the theatre has been operated by the Sid Williams Theatre Society, a registered charitable organization, since 2001. A staff of 18 is responsible for the day-to-day running of the theatre, from artistic programming to custodial, from promotions to lighting design.
