Jumbo’s cabin is all that is left standing from Cumberland’s once-bustling Chinatown. Learn the fascinating history of the Chinese people who came to work in the Dunsmuir coal mines and left a lasting legacy.

In creating a connection with the current exhibition, A Seat At The Table: Chinese Immigration and British Columbia, tour guide Dawn Copeman will be infusing this year's tour with knowledge and special stories of food.

The Cumberland Museum and Archives on Vancouver Island tells the story of the people of Cumberland—the rich, the poor, the powerful, the rebellious, the righteous and the radical. We invite you to join us at the “People’s Museum” of Cumberland and add your questions, knowledge, stories and interests to the rich fabric of our organization.
