The Museum is located in Mission, a small city in the heart of the Fraser Valley with a rich history, including being the site of Canada’s first train robbery by the notorious Billy Miner in 1904. The Museum’s permanent displays trace the history of Mission from the first peoples to live in the area, through the arrival of Father Fouquet and his establishment of St. Mary’s Mission, to the arrival of the railways and recent developments. Also featured are special displays of kitchen, logging and farming artifacts from early settlers, as well as the famous Western Canada Soap Box Derby. The Museum offers a wide variety of tours targeted specifically for children, as well as material for adults. Tour materials are available in French or English. Throughout the year there are a variety of special events including Antique Evaluations and Lemonade on the porch.
