Comox

The Comox Archives and Museum The Comox Archives and Museum celebrates the rich maritime, pioneer and natural history of its coastal community. From exciting exhibits to local events, it strives to bring the history of Comox to life for all generations to appreciate. The Comox Archives and Museum Society promotes discovery, learning, and an appreciation of the region’s natural, cultural, and artistic heritage. Through the integration of research, collections, and education, CAMS strives to promote learning and inspire stewardship and sustainable use of Comox’s natural and cultural resources. CAMS presents quarterly family history talks free of charge to the public. These talks give genealogy enthusiasts an understanding of some of the characters who made Comox what it is today as well as tips on how to conduct their own family research. Many of these talks were done as PowerPoint presentations or were videotaped, which are available for viewing at the museum. CAMS is fortunate to have a certified genealogist who will conduct genealogical research. Pam Moughton has had a great deal of success researching her own families as well as countless others. Pam will do quick lookups free of charge or research for individuals at a very reasonable fee that includes a free evaluation of the project. If you are interested in having the CAMS genealogist search for your ancestors, e-mail camsgenealogy@shaw.ca. The museum is at 1729 Comox Ave. Contact it by phoning 250339-2885 or e-mailing comoxmuseum@shaw.ca. The website is at www.comoxmuseum.ca.

Cumberland

The Courtenay and District The Cumberland Museum Museum and Paleontology Centre and Archives The Courtenay and District Museum and Paleontology Centre is located downtown in the former post office at 207 Fourth St. on the corner of Fourth and Cliffe Avenue. For almost 50 years, the museum has been showcasing the natural and cultural heritage of the breathtaking Comox Valley. You can find a lot at the museum, which is full of science, academic research, interpretation, preservation — and having fun. You can take a fossil tour and travel 80 million years back in time or browse the galleries to delve into the stories that make our history come alive. The Courtenay and District Museum offers fascinating programs suitable for all ages and levels of interest. An ongoing lecture series focuses on natural science and the pioneer settlements in the Comox Valley. The Paleontology Department provides programs about prehistoric life and field tours to excavation sites. Guests are able to walk on and explore an exposed 80-million-year-old sea floor. The museum is pleased to offer public and school tours, archival services and other special programs year-round. For more information, contact the museum by phoning 250-3340686, faxing 250-338-0619 or e-mailing museum@island.net. The website is at www.courtenaymuseum.ca.

The museum is located in the heart of the historic village, steps from #6 Memorial Mine Park and downtown shopping and dining. It is wheelchair-accessible, offers free wireless Internet access and provides visitor services for travellers.

It is dedicated to finding new ways to connect and engage with its changing community to ensure that the Cumberland Museum is relevant now and in the future.
