Overview

The Dixon Entrance Maritime Museum is located in an historical building – that being the original Masset hospital, built in 1914. The building has also served as a school house, a teacherage and an alternative school. The Dixon Entrance Maritime Museum was organized with leadership from David Phillips and a group of dedicated volunteers. The museum opened to the public in 2001 and continues to operate as a non-profit organization.

The focus of the museum is upon Greater Massett’s maritime and settlement history. The museum features exhibits of Masset and Old Massett’s fishing fleets and shipbuilders as well as the numerous clam and crab canneries (Tow Hill, Naden Harbour, Old Masset, Lock Port and Queen Charlotte).

The museum captures the history of the thriving north end communities in a time of abundance and hardship.

The museum displays include photographs and documentation from the turn of the century featuring medical pioneers on Haida Gwaii, Union Steamships as the mode of transportation to Haida Gwaii, pioneer life and military history.

The museum also features local art exhibits throughout the year.
