The Shawnigan Lake Museum is located in the heart of the Shawnigan Village. Known for its friendly staff and volunteers, extensive information on the history of the community, and quaint building, the museum is the unofficial tourist information centre of the South Cowichan Valley.
Visiting our 'big' museum in the small village of Shawnigan Lake is guaranteed to surprise you.
For almost 40 years, the museum has celebrated the history and the people of Shawnigan Lake (and the surrounding area).
