Museums & Galleries

Courtenay & District Museum and Paleontology Centre is one of the best places in the city if you're looking to explore the history and culture of the area. The museum has an excellent collection of locally excavated dinosaur and other reptile fossils. The Elasmosaurus fossil that was found locally is the highlight of the museum. They also conduct interesting excursions to a nearby river bed for some hands-on digging and fossil tours. They also exhibit plenty of local historic art and culture items. The staff are friendly and are knowledgeable and ensure your visit to the museum is fun and informative.
