Thank you for your interest in the Fraser River Discovery Centre’s Guided Tour programs!

The Fraser River Discovery Centre is filled with stories of those who live and work along the Fraser River, and we are pleased to bring these stories to life in our guided tour programs!

Currently the FRDC offers two distinct options: indoor Exhibit Tours of both floors of the Centre’s galleries, and outdoor Historical Walking Tours along the New Westminster Quay.
