Ukee Aquarium is FANTASTIC 5 out of 5 stars

a Great Experience for Anyone

Reviewed by: mark penney,

The Aquarium is a great source of pride for our community, each year the aquarium staff catch an amazing variety of sea life, show it to the public and release them all each fall. There are numerous touch tanks, and lots of interesting and accurate information ~ bring the kids and definitely bring your camera.

I stop by almost each visit to Victoria. The art collection belonged to the Hotel's owner and upon his passing the collection was donated and displayed in the various buildings he owned. There are many notable native art pieces, including a copper traded for 80 slaves, Tony Hunt Sr. carvings and several original Norval Morrisseau Paintings grace the walls of the pub. If you enjoy native art ~ it's a must see.
