Our Mission

The mission of the Museum Society is:

 

  • To promote, foster and develop the interests of the residents of Gabriola Island, its visitors and other institutions, in the island’s past, present and future cultural and natural history.

 

  • To tell the story of Gabriola island through special exhibits, displays, lectures, presentations and tours. This story includes the island’s geology, geography, flora, fauna, and marine environment, as well as the island’s history, emphasizing the way in which Coast Salish people, European explorers, post-contact pioneers and recent inhabitants have related to its natural setting and earlier history.

 

  • To acquire by any legal means, donations or purchases of land, artifacts or other items that will serve the Society’s interests and purposes.
