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 website.

Museum Fundraiser: Cruiser Bike Poker Run Contest

The Pemberton & District Museum & Archives Society is a non-for profit society. The Pemberton Museum is going to be running a Cruiser Bike Poker Run Contest fundraiser on Saturday June 4th 2016. This fundraiser is to improve access for disabled visitors, and to improve lighting on the exterior of buildings for evening use of the site. We are also fundraising for the improvement of the safety and security of the site and need to fix perimeter fence. Our last big project that we need help with is saving the Pemberton Station School and John Arn Cabin from decay at the old Coast Mountain Outdoor School. These two buildings were donated to the Museum by School District 48. Participants 18 years or older in age are eligible to win prizes. You must have the registration form and waiver form completed in order to be eligible. The person with the highest hand and the person with the lowest hand will win cash prizes. All participants that have not won the cash prizes will be entered into a draw for draw prizes.
