With pictures, information, displays, artifacts and computer programs aimed to teach visitors about this British Columbia city, the Richmond Museum is an excellent place to enjoy and to educate. With dozens of exhibits and temporary and rotating exhibits, the Museum is somewhere to visit from time to time to learn about Richmond.

With a collection of hundreds of artifacts, the Richmond Museum located in Minoru Park has become a testament to the decades of growth in the region. With displays ranging from the first public modes of transportation to a mock general store, the Museum houses many of Richmond's most important artifacts.

When Richmond was first formed over one hundred years ago there were two main industries - the Fishing and Canning industry and Farming. Fishing and Canning took place along the coast and Fraser River, especially in the Steveston area. Farming was located throughout the Island and what is now the city was once rich agricultural land - some farms still in operation on the Island's southern edge. Many of the displays highlight the importance of these industries to the city.

The Richmond Museum has many displays and boards with interesting information. Blueberry pickers, old tools and other items can be seen throughout the museum as well as ski equipment, streetcar seats, nets and immigration trucks as well as old pictures.

The Museum works hard to collect and display items and information significant to the development and history of Richmond. It is an interesting place to visit and appreciate Richmond and its roots.
