A Moment In History

Pemberton & District BC Canada

Welcome to the Pemberton and District Museum, located in the heart of the Pemberton Valley, the traditional and unceded territory of Lil'wat Nation, who have been here since time immemorial.

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.

Our 1-acre site is home to 9 buildings, the earliest built in 1897, as well as a collection of over 2,500 artifacts, 2,000 photographs and over 20 meters of archival and reference materials. Our exhibits include examples of early pioneer life, farming, schooling, commerce, transportation, and industry, as well the ingenuity, creativity and artistry of those that came before us.

Open to the public between June and October, we host group and private tours, school field trips, community and private events and offer our guests a variety of fun activities to engage and educate.

We invite you to step back in time and explore our unique history. We look forward to your visit!
