The Kitimat Museum & Archives has roots in the community dating back to 1965 when a museum was first considered the way for Kitimat to celebrate Canada's centennial birthday in 1967.
The Kitimat Centennial Museum (original name) opened in October 1969 and has served Kitimat citizens for the past forty years as the place for community and natural history, and an exhibition centre for visual arts.
Donations are accepted in consultation with the Curator and the Acquisitions Committee, Museum Board of Directors.
