Featured Events and Exhibits
Sunday, May 17th at 12 noon was the opening of the Museum’s new season and our 20th year anniversary.
We saluted our founders, honoured the Snuneymuxw, enjoyed new poetry by Naomi Beth Wakan, heard about the exciting plans for the museum’s new exhibits and outdoor rejuvenation, and celebrated with the many volunteers and members that help make our new exhibits and programs possible. We also glimpsed a preview screening of the Museum’s new film, The Land Provides. Many thanks to Robert’s Place for the tasty burgers and yummy cake!
Come and stroll around the outdoor garden, and read our new informational signs.
