Welcome to our Gift Shop
The final room on your tour is the Museum Gift Shop. Originally the kitchen, this area had two rooms with a hallway leading to the outside door. On the ceiling, you can see traces where walls were located and there is an illustration of what the kitchen may have looked like. The shop now inhabiting this room is brimming with wonderful gift ideas for people of all ages, ranging from toys and educational games to Pashmina shawls, jewellery and dolls.

Victoria’s Castle – Craigdarroch Castle in Victoria, British Columbia is a stately Victorian mansion completed in 1890 for Robert and Joan Dunsmuir, Scottish immigrants who made their fortune from Vancouver Island coal. This 52-minute educational video tells some of the stories of the Dunsmuir family and subsequent institutions who occupied Victoria’s Castle and highlights Craigdarroch’s relationship with the city of Victoria’s development.
