Fridays are usually pretty good to begin with, but the Museum at Campbell River can help make your Fridays even better this summer! Fun Fridays returns for its second year to offer a different experience at the Museum. Fun Friday are essentially tours of areas and aspects of the Museum that are less well known or less explored during a typical visit to the Museum at Campbell River.

There will be three different Fun Friday programmes this summer, including a tours of the Soyokaze and the Native Plant Garden, as well as the telling of First Nations Stories. All tours will be followed by fun activities, including games for children, and crafts for people of all ages.

Fun Friday events begin on July 14th and will be held every Friday until August 25th. The tours of the Soyokaze will be taking place on July 14th, August 4th, and August 25th at 11:00am and 2:00pm. The programme is included with the price of admission. For more information please call us at 250-287-3103, email us at, or visit us online at

Summer Programs at the Museum at Campbell River are funded in part by the Government of Canada.
