Pemberton Museum

museum

The Pemberton Museum explores the history of the Pemberton Valley, from its beginnings as a home to Lil'wat Nation - who settled at the foot of towering Mount Currie and at the head of Lillooet Lake - to the arrival of European settlers in the late 1880s, to its role as a farming community.

Pemberton's History on Display

Pemberton Museum SThe Pemberton Museum collects, preserves and displays artifacts connected with the human history of Pemberton and district.

The displays feature: the self-sufficiency of the Lil'wat people before contact with people making their way to the gold fields, the coming of people attracted by gold on the Fraser and some of the physical changes they created in the district, and the lives of the settlers and later residents.

There are some fascinating historical homes on the museum site that date from the late 19th century.
