Welcome to the Cumberland Museum and Archives
Where the history of our community comes to life!
Cumberland is a community steeped in history. Once Canada’s smallest and westernmost city, Cumberland was a bustling coal mining community from 1888 to 1966, with miners, entrepreneurs and their families streaming in from across Canada the US, Europe, China and Japan.
A visit to the Cumberland Museum is the ideal way to get a handle on this iconic village, from the rabble-rousers to the aristocrats, and everyone in between.
