**July 2020 Up-Date:  Sidney Museum has been working with the Town of Sidney’s Emergency Operations Centre to ensure proper safety measures have been taken for the protection of our staff, volunteers and visitors. We are happy to say that since we closed March 14th, we are ready to welcome visitors back starting June 24th. The LEGO exhibit will remain up until July 11th and then we will close to the public to install two new exhibits which open July 16th. We are offering timed entry for visitors, with reduced days of operation (Wednesdays through Sundays, 10:00am to 4:00pm) and limited capacity.


Take a walk through time and discover the natural history of the area, followed by regularly updated permanent displays on local First Nations, industry, transportation, agriculture and social history.

In addition to our permanent exhibits, the Sidney Museum also features showcase exhibits changing throughout the year. Check out the exhibition schedule for full details on what is coming up soon.

Sidney Museum was established in 1971 with a mandate to acquire, preserve and make available the heritage, culture and interests of the Saanich Peninsula. It has proudly served the Saanich Peninsula community ever since. To date, the permanent museum collections contains over 8,000 artifacts and even more archival images and documents, many of which are regularly exhibited in the Sidney Museum’s permanent exhibition galleries. The Archives are available by research appointment and contain a large collection of documents, local newspapers and photographs.
