The Waskesiu Heritage Museum displays the human history of Waskesiu Lake and Prince Albert National Park since its 1928 creation. We feature an original canvas-roofed shack tent and a replica camp kitchen from the early days in Waskesiu. Other outdoor exhibits include a fire tower cupola, a portable cabin and shed fondly known as a dog house, a railcart portaging a canoe, and wash day equipment. An original log building houses indoor exhibits and displays.

What to do on a rainy, windy, or cool day in Waskesiu?

Visit us at the Museum.  Check the 30 Things to do section of the website (link below) for ideas and ask our guide in the shack tent.  You can pass the time with our free audio guides or design your own Cowichan sweater pattern.
