Welcome to Steveston Museum and Visitor Centre
Built in 1905 in the heart of the village, Steveston Museum and Visitor Centre’s iconic cream, red and white building is a true heritage gem. Originally Richmond’s first bank, the building is now a museum, visitor centre and post office.
Come inside and be surrounded by the warmth and feel of history. Explore our two permanent exhibits recreating the bank manager’s office and a kitchen/dining room of yesteryear. We also have a temporary exhibit case highlighting fascinating elements of Steveston’s past.
At the Tourism Richmond visitor centre, friendly and knowledgeable staff will help visitors and locals alike to experience the best that Steveston has to offer. They will even make bookings for you. There is also a full-service post office that offers wonderful extras such as special edition coins and the latest stamps for collectors.
We are currently undergoing significant changes to the museum. A second structure, the Japanese Fishermen’s Benevolent Association building, was added to the Steveston Museum site in 2010. Built before 1900, this building is currently undergoing intensive exterior and interior heritage rehabilitation.
The building will contain exhibit and rental space and will tell the story of the Japanese Canadian experience in Steveston. It is due to open in 2014 and marks a new and exciting chapter in the history of Steveston Museum.
Steveston Museum works in partnership with the Steveston Historical Society.
