New Westminster Museum and Archives

777 Columbia Street | 604.527.4640      

New Westminster’s Museums & Archives are managed across three city locations: Anvil Centre, Irving House and the Samson V Museum.  The operations care for over 36,000 objects and another 35,000 photographs and archival records that celebrate our city’s stories and history. Our exhibits focus on the land, people, and development of the place now known as New Westminster. We aspire to be fun and entertaining places of learning and use the objects in the museum’s collection as an entry-point to inquiry, discussion, and exploration about the city. During the Culture Crawl be sure to explore “You Are What You Eat! Community Food Security,” a feature exhibition of stories that help us to understand how people eat in our community.
