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.
