A Moment In History

Pemberton & District BC Canada

The Pemberton Museum has over 2,000 artifacts, 2,000 photographs and over 20 meters of archival and reference materials that have been collected since 1982. Our mandate is to collect, preserve and display artifacts associated with human activity in the District.

We have upgraded our website to better serve our community and to deliver on our mandate to provide public access to our collections. This project was made possible thanks to funding received from Heritage Canada through the Museum Assistance Program in 2013.

We will continue to add content to the Collections online and we hope you enjoy the improved searchability of our online content.
