Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Hard to find museum - just getting started. I has the potential to be a very important resource for the community - locals and tourists.

The museum is FULL of interesting artifacts and information about Tofino's history, The hard part is trying to see it and enjoy it in such a limited space! There were maybe seven or eight people in the museum when we visited, and you had to step outside to change your mind! Kept bumping into folks as they tried to turn around or back up a step!
This display needs a NEW home!!

We encountered this little out of the way museum in Tofino rich with history. The curator was so knowledgeable and the artifacts and pictures were clearly authentic. We were a group of 4 and my sons who were 17 really enjoyed it as well.

This museum obviously has to get along on a limited budget and volunteer help. Given these circumstances it is amazing the effort that has gone into telling the Tofino’s fascinating history primarily using simple storyboards and photographs. Some excellent artifacts accompany these stories as well. We entered with the intention of giving it a cursory glance and ended up staying a long time fascinated by so much interesting material. Don’t miss this chance to learn a great deal about Tofino and the area.

This is a new venture in Tofino and has some interesting displays telling you about the history and hardships encountered in the early days of the town. Pop in and support what is something that will only get better.

Called in here as we were just walking past the RCL at Tofino. It's a small museum of local history and provides a historical context to the town.

A great addition to Tofino! It's a wonderful place to pop in to learn a bit about the rich history of the area. The museum is free (who doesn't love that?) and still in progress so I expect more to come!
