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.
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.
