In 1984 a group of ladies headed by Elizabeth Little and Cora Skipsey got together to form the Qualicum Beach Historical & Museum Society. We continue to build on that legacy today. In the years since the Museum’s inception, our population has grown significantly and the Museum has become a cornerstone of this vibrant community. Funds donated to the QB Museum will be used to pave the road to a sustainable future with improved programs, exhibits and grounds. And there has never been a better time to donate to YOUR Museum! The Town of Qualicum Beach has agreed to match
donations ‘dollar for dollar’ up to a total of $15,000. Help us keep the stories alive for future generations – we offer a range of options and look forward to your support!


Museum memberships are $20 per annum and benefits include:
– voting rights at membership meetings;
– discounts on many items available in our gift shop
– invitation to special Museum events
– gift of Museum lapel pin [wear it with pride!]
– bragging rights as a Museum supporter
