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.

**The Sidney Museum has been approved for a $57,000 grant from Heritage BC, part of the CERIP Unique Heritage Infrastructure stream to refurbish the Museum’s floors.
To accommodate this project, the Museum will be closed to the public for three months, beginning in June 2021. This will provide Museum staff the time required to dismantle semi-permanent displays, relocate display objects and finally, install new displays as the work on the floor is completed. The Sidney Archives will still be operating via e-mail, telephone or by appointment. Everyone at the Museum is excited to move forward with this project that will help serve the Sidney and North Saanich community and greatly improve visitor experience.

The Sidney Museum will re-open in September 2021 with the Icelandic Connections to Canada Exhibit from Articulation Textile Group.
