Preserving the Past for the Future!
The New Westminster Museum and Archives is home to a diverse array of documentary heritage that tells the story of New Westminster’s evolution from a colonial capital carved out of the forest to a bustling city. Preserved for present and future generations are archival records that document local organizations, businesses, government, families and individuals for over 150 years.

The Archives holds thousands of historic photographs and other items such as maps, plans, diaries, letters, city records and oral histories. In the reading room there are reference files on people, properties and subjects.

If you have questions about your family’s history, the age of your house, the development of your neighbourhood, the history of a New Westminster business or about the administration of local government, the New Westminster Museum and Archives is the place to find some answers.
