This place is marvelous, with a backdrop of downtown Nanaimo and a foreground of the marina, it is actually a photographers delight! Not for the physically challenged as there are three levels of stairs, but it is wonderful to climb and see both inside displays and artifacts, and outside views. Admission by donation. Enjoy your history.

Nanaimo is fortunate to have this gem of a theatre. It has great acoustics, and the sight lines from any seat in the theatre are good. We have season's tickets to the Vancouver Island Symphony, which performs at this theatre, and attend many other functions there as well. There's programming for every taste...be it dance, classical music, pop, jazz, blues, or drama.

This library has the best resources and the staff are amazing and knowledgeable. We just found out that the library has e research that you can go into, if you need to find out mechanical information, under auto repair. The gentleman took time out of his schedule to help us with this information. Unfortunately, I did not get his name. Thank you.
