Surrey is home to a small number of quality museums that showcase its urban and agricultural history, vintage transportation, arts scene, and nature. British Columbia's second-largest city has a rich heritage.

Surrey Museum

Located in the historic town centre of Cloverdale, the Surrey Museum (17710-56A Ave) was the first new museum built in British Columbia in the new millennium. The brick-and-glass, 2,230sq m/24,000sq ft museum features a variety of rotating exhibits and interactive displays.

Look for the Honey Hooser weaving collections, check out native baskets and artifacts, and peer into the Anderson pioneer cabin outside. The on-site Surrey Archives offer unique historic photos and newspaper clippings to browse through.
