We were very impressed with the volunteers working at this location.

Took my 2 grand children here today and after the train ride the rest was not enough to hold their interest for very long. They should have recorded voice giving explanations at each exhibit. We spent a couple of hours here and saw everything and we were all done. ( Kids are 8 & 10 ). For the price they... 更多

Fantastic spot for family outing, especially if you like trains. The old logging steam engines are running all day for trips around the property. Great picnic site and very good logging museum. We love it there, and the kids just get so excited to ride the trains.

If you have any interest in the BC logging industry the Discovery Center is worth a visit. It's a great place for kids also and the train ride is always a hit. Don't miss it if you are passing through Duncan.
