Welcome to the Chilliwack Museum & Archives

Located in historic Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada, the Chilliwack Museum and Archives are operated by the Chilliwack Museum and Historical Society.  Since its inception in 1958, the Museum and Archives have developed one of the largest and most important archival and object collections in the Fraser Valley.

The Museum is housed in a historic building near Chilliwack's downtown - the 1912 former City Hall - where you can view historic exhibits on the main floor and contemporary art shows on the second floor. The Archives, located in Evergreen Hall a few blocks from the Museum, is the place where visitors can access historic artifacts and records.
