Roesland in winters' past
Museum Building

The museum is located in the Roe House at Roesland on North Pender Island, one of the properties that form the Gulf Islands National Park Reserve - a beautiful waterfront setting featuring open lawns for picnicing. A short trail leads to a spectacular viewpoint, especially at sunset.

The purpose of the Pender Islands Museum is to acquire, catalogue, display and preserve historical artifacts and archival records related to the Pender Islands and to make them available for public viewing, education, and research. We are in the process of digitizing our collection and progress can be seen under the "Collections" tab. Occasionally special programs are offered for locals and visitors alike. These may include garden parties, museum tours, demonstrations, sponsored lectures and display tables at local events.
