After over a year of renovations, the Quesnel Museum and Archives is finally welcoming tourists and newcomers back inside their doors.

The museum closed in March of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and was completely shut down in May to begin renovations. The Quesnel Visitor’s Centre is also open once again.

The museum is open every day from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
