About

The islands that comprise Richmond have shaped our city, just as our city has shaped these islands. Early farmers were faced with the challenge of draining, diking and creating transportation links to Vancouver, ushering in profound changes. Today, the city strives to balance agriculture, development and sustainability.

Richmond Stories is a collection of 10 short videos that bring Richmond's history to life through storytelling, archival photos, and modern videography.

Richmond Museum

The Richmond Museum is operated collaboratively by the Richmond Museum Society and City of Richmond. The Museum’s vision is to make the history of Richmond relevant, engaging and accessible.

To support this vision, the Museum collects, documents, researches, preserves, exhibits and interprets objects of historical and cultural significance to the development and history of Richmond.

As storytellers, collectors and educators, our goal is to create moments of wonder and understanding. Our exhibitions tell the many fascinating stories of Richmond; our collections are windows into how we live, past and present; our education programs open minds, young and old; and our work inspires action for a healthy community and planet.
