The Bella Coola Valley Museum reflects the eclectic history of the Valley from the early explorers to the coming of the pioneers up to 1955. Formerly a schoolhouse and a surveyor´s cabin, the museum is housed in a heritage log building that dates back to 1892.
On display are items brought by Norwegians to the New World, artifacts & photographs that tell tales of the early trading days when the Hudson’s Bay Company thrived.
The Central Coast Archives are also located here and available year-round for research.
Arrangements can be made for school and special events during the rest of the year.
