Pitt Meadows Museum
The Pitt Meadows Museum (12294 Harris Rd) occupies the former General Store building on the municipality's historic central road. Dating back to 1885 and surrounded by heritage gardens, it's packed with artifacts that reflect the pioneer history of Pitt Meadows. Pore over old cookbooks, Blue Willow china, and utensils in the kitchen.
Or venture into the main gallery to buy raspberry candies, goggle at a 1908 Sears Roebuck catalogue, or examine entomologist, George Doerksen's butterfly and insect collection.
