Dates of existence



The BC Sugar Museum opened in 1976. The intent of the Museum was education and outreach and stemmed from a desire to give back to the community and share the rich history of BC Sugar. Along with other members of the public and tourists, thousands of children from British Columbia toured the BC Sugar Museum with school groups.

The BC Sugar Museum was essentially cut off from the public and bus loads of tour groups in 2001 after the Port Metro Vancouver began enforcing strict security measures and severely restricting access to the Port Metro Vancouver following the attacks of September 11, 2001.
