Discover the Past

From rare Chinese artifacts used during the gold rush era to ephemera that will evoke childhood memories, our extensive collections are sure to appeal to all ages and interests. Listen to the stories of our Chinese and First Nations Elders, or view our Sikh temple through interactive video installations. Meet the early residents of Quesnel through the photographs of C.D. Hoy and C.S. Wing or uncover bonus content in the exhibits by scanning QR Codes.  Learn the secrets of Mandy, the Haunted Doll, dress up in the children’s activity centre or participate in a scavenger hunt.  Or stop by our gift shop for a large selection of local history books or the perfect souvenir of your visit to the Cariboo.

The Quesnel Museum is located on the traditional territory of the Lhtako Dene.
