North Shore Museums

Delve into a little history at our museums and find out all about us, who we are, where we’ve come from, and where we’re going, and notably about our First Nations. There’s plenty here to enthrall everyone from little children to grownups.

BC Mills House

Lynn Headwaters Regional Park is home to both a varied and interesting human history and a variety of wilderness, including forest, streams and rocky bluffs. The BC Mills House is a great place to start any adventure in the park. There, park volunteers provide current information about trails, history and natural history in the park. BC Mills House is open every Sunday between May and September, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.  To get to the BC Mills House follow Lynn Valley Road up past Dempsey Road, then follow signs for Lynn Headwaters Park. There are three major parking areas, which can often be busy as this is a popular recreation area.
