 The Chemainus Valley Museum is operated by the Chemainus Valley Historical Society, a non-profit organization. The Museum is located in the beautiful Water Wheel Park, found in the centre of town. Off to the side of the Museum is a wonderful observation point which overlooks the site of the first and present sawmill. Looking out, you can see the large ships, log booms and busy harbour framed by the beautiful Gulf Islands.

 Rich in the history and beauty, Chemainus is located on the coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. The town's roots are strongly linked with the 1850's early pioneers and the timber industry. But now, it is better known for the many Murals found painted on the walls around town displaying the history of Chemainus.
