Welcome to the official blog of the Sunshine Coast Museum & Archives in Gibsons, British Columbia. We're a small museum that strives to preserve and present the history of the beautiful area between Howe Sound and Jervis Inlet. Drop by sometime - we're located at 716 Winn Road, just across from the post office. We're open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:30 until 4:30. For more information, visit our website!
While logging techniques have changed dramatically over the past century, the forestry industry as a whole continues to influence the economy and culture of the Sunshine Coast. Here at the Museum, our extensive logging exhibit has recently been refreshed with more in-depth text panels and labeling. An artifact that deserves to be highlighted from this exhibit is the Vaughn Drag Saw. Check out this vintage piece of heavy machinery in operation!
