Just about half-way between Victoria and Nanaimo lies the city of Duncan.
Right in the heart of the Cowichan Valley, Duncan has a couple of claims to fame, home of the world's largest hockey stick and more importantly, the world's largest collection of totems. This is a very walkable city which makes it easy to view the many examples of First Nation's Art that can be found everywhere.
Once you've enjoyed your visit to the Museum, take the time to walk around and discover why coming off the highway has its benefits. Here you're central to everything that makes this a popular spot with folks looking for a colorful change of scenery. Beautiful shops, galleries, restaurants, bakeries, cafes, wine bars and musical venues make this a destination. The Duncan Farmers Market has a loyal following and runs seasonally.
