Sikh Museum in Abbotsford

33094 S Fraser Way, Abbotsford, BC V2S 2A8, Canada

Sikh Heritage Museum is Located in the National Historic Site Gur Sikh Temple.

The Gur Sikh Gurdwara (temple), where the Sikh Heritage museum is located, is a unique Canadian national heritage site. The temple was built by the first Sikhs who arrived in Canada from Punjab in 1905 — farmers and foresters under the auspices of the Khalsa Diwan Society. The heritage community allowed new immigrants to congregate, provide assistance to each other, practice their religion, and provide food and shelter to the needy.

When the Gur Sikh Temple turned 100 years old in 2011, the ground floor was converted to the Sikh Heritage Museum.

The Sikh Heritage Museum celebrated the launch of its seventh official exhibition on January 17, with over 120 attendees. The exhibition, titled Canadian Sikhs in WW1: The Forgotten Story, explores the individual stories of 10 Canadian Sikh soldiers serving in the Great War.

The seventh official exhibition at the Sikh Heritage Museum featured the story of the ten Canadian-Sikh soldiers who served in WWI. Exhibition Runs from January 2015-December 2015

The exhibition is open for the general public until December 2015.

Museum is open seven days a week 9am-5pm
