Vancouver Island map

Sointula is located on Malcolm Island, reached by ferry service from Port McNeill on Vancouver Island. The museum is located in the old Superior School Building at 280 1st. Street in Sointula. To reach the museum, either on foot or by car, turn left off the ferry and proceed three blocks to a bend in the road. The Superior School is located on the left (water side). The museum and the local library share the building.

The Sointula Museum Committee operates the Sointula Museum. An office manager is hired for five months to facilitate the operation of the museum over the busy summer season when it is open seven days a week. If you are visiting and find the museum closed please phone the number shown on the posters outside the entrance and around Sointula (and copied below). A dedicated group of volunteers acts as hosts to guide visitors. We try our best to accurately represent the rich history of our small community.
