Self-Guided Visits

Visit the museum gallery by signing up for predetermined time slots! You can register here for free, timed admission, self-guided visits. Here are the details:

  • Self guided visits are only available during certain times. In June we are offering self-guided times every half hour between 11:00am – 3:30pm on Thursday June 25 – Saturday June 27. Expanded hours will be available in July.
  • Please register below for your preferred visit time. Drop-in visitors will only be accommodated on a case-by-case basis as capacity allows. Selecting your admission time online ensures your entry.
  • Booking a spot does not generate a physical ticket. Please check in at the front desk at your appointed time and we will admit you using your name.
  • You will need (1) ticket per person in your group, including children.
  • Admission is FREE until September 18th thanks to a generous donation by the Stanley de Vos Fund at the Nanaimo Foundation.
