Sointula Museum home

The Sointula Museum is open every day from Friday May 17, 2019 through Sunday, September 29, 2019 — 12:00 to 4:00 PM.

The Sointula Museum explores the 117-year history of the settlement of Sointula. Its Utopian beginnings involves the development of socialist thought in Canada and the building of the commercial fishing industry, unions and cooperative economic structures.  Through the years a strong spirit of community has prevailed, still evident in the lives of the current residents who call Sointula home.
