The Surrey Museum is open and yours to discover! The 24,000 square foot museum is the first new museum built in B.C. in the 21st century. Explore modern new permanent exhibits, attractive and expanded space for programs, activities and crafts, a new 42-seat orientation theatre, and exciting Temporary Exhibits. The Museum is also the new home for the textile library and weaving studio, and the Honey Hooser weaving collection, all relocated from Elgin Heritage Park. The museum’s permanent community-history collection, one of the largest in the province, tells Surrey’s tales past, present and future. Temporary exhibits enhance the collection with diverse and exciting themes.

This community history collection is the third largest in British Columbia and offers visitors an unparalleled opportunity to see, explore and discover the story of Surrey. The Museum features exhibits of a selection of 5,000 year old stone tools created by the Indigenous Peoples of the area. It also houses the 1881 Town hall, Surrey's first seat of civic government, and displays re-creations of the interiors of turn of the century homes and businesses that will both educate and entertain visitors of all ages.

Temporary Exhibitions The temporary exhibition gallery showcases four changing exhibits each year. A broad range of topics and collections related to Canadian, North American or world heritage, nature and cultures are featured. It could be LEGO, the wonders of Ripley’s Believe It or Not, Egyptian artifacts from the Royal Ontario Museum, or bikes from the Canadian Museum of Science and Technology. A world of wonder and fun comes to Surrey each year through the Museum’s temporary, traveling exhibitions.
