Welcome to the

Museum & Visitor Centre

The Agassiz-Harrison Historical Society would like to acknowledge that we are located on the traditional, unceded and ancestral lands of the Sto:lo First Nation. We are grateful for the opportunity to live, work and learn in this beautiful place in mutual respect.


Located in one of Canada’s oldest wood built Canadian Pacific Railway stations established in 1893, the Museum & Visitor Centre is situated in the heart of beautiful downtown Agassiz, British Columbia nestled under the watchful eye of magnificent Mt. Cheam.


Agassiz is a small, friendly agricultural community known for its country living and endless outdoor activities.
