Palaeontology & Fossils
The Museum’s Palaeontology Exhibit is recognized as one of world-class stature by palaeontologists worldwide and has become our premier attraction. Consisting primarily of fossils found in British Columbia, the collection was assembled and is curated by the internationally known biologist and fossil collector, Graham Beard, in conjunction with the Vancouver Island Palaeontology Society. We welcome visitors to come and explore our prehistoric past here at the Museum, located steps from the downtown core, across from the heritage Train Station. More
Social History & Culture
The Qualicum Beach Museum is a community museum, originally established by dedicated volunteers to store and preserve the local history of Qualicum and surrounding area. Our social history exhibits chronicle Pioneer living at the turn of the century and also features First Nations Culture. A grand mural by local artists depicting the Town’s early days brings alive the unique character of Qualicum as it developed through the years. The Museum also maintains an extensive archive of local historical documents and photographs. More
