Surrey Museum Surrey
Where are we going today?
History is just waiting to be explore at the Surrey Museum! Did you know that there was SO much fascinating history in Surrey, that it deserved it's own museum? Now you do, and now you can explore it all!
The Surrey Museum is filled with permanent galleries, as well as travelling exhibits, that will tell you all of the great stories of the area.
The permanent displays can tell you all of the stories through graphics, artifacts, text and sound. Don' t miss the Kids Gallery too, where it's ALL about interaction! Everything is there to be touched, and played with, and explored, and that's perfect for those inquisitive little ones.
So much better than just exploring "do not touch" signs!
You can learn about the rich history when it comes to urban development, farming, logging, home life, and even the way of life!
There are great exhibitions on at the Surrey Museum, where you can see traditions such as spinning and weaving take place, and even enjoy hands-on events, and workshops where you can get involved!
Make sure you take the time to explore the Anderson Cabin too. This is a great example of a typical pioneer shelter, and it's actually one of the OLDEST remaining pioneer-era homes in the entire area!
History really does come to life at The Surrey Museum, and you might just be surprised how much history is all around you, and now you are becoming part of it!

More excitement than a barrel of monkeys. Never a dull moment in the township. Whom ever says you should just pass through is just trying to keep this gem to himself, greedy bugger.

You can see weavers at work on Wednesdays at the loom room upstairs.
