The Richmond Museum aims to inspire curiosity about our community’s history while exploring our place in the world. We invite visitors, students and educators to come on a journey of discovery with us.
As museum storytellers, collectors and educators, our goal is to create moments of wonder and understanding. Our exhibitions tell the many stories of Richmond; our collections show how we live, past and present; our education programs open minds, young and old; and our work translates into action for a healthy community and planet.
The Richmond Museum collects, documents, researches, preserves, exhibits and interprets objects of historical and cultural significance to the development and history of Richmond.
The Richmond Regional Heritage Fair is an annual two-day event presented by the Richmond Museum. It not only showcases history projects created by Richmond students but also offers unique, enriching activities that inspire a deeper appreciation for and curiosity about Canada’s past.
Each year, over 100 Richmond students present Heritage Fair projects on topics that draw from family and local Richmond stories to regional, provincial and national history. Over 6000 students take part in Heritage Fairs across BC and thousands more across Canada.
