May 17-23, 2021 is BC Museums Week

The annual celebration of museums, art galleries, historic sites, cultural centres, and other memory institutions in BC.

The week is held annually in May, providing an opportunity for British Columbians to celebrate the vital role museums play in their communities, economy and education. This year’s theme is #MuseumACTION and the BC Museum Association (BCMA) has an exciting week of free webinars, podcasts, discussions and other resources available to help you make change for the future.

Gabriola Museum will be open on May 18 from 11 am – 4pm (COVID protocols in place), for you to come in and explore the museum’s exhibits, talk to the staff about the museum’s exciting projects and programs, take a stroll along the native plant walkway or admire the Petroglyph reproductions. To acknowledge International Museum Day, Gabriola Museum members who are current for 2021 will receive a members’ 10% discount in the Gift Shop (consignment items excluded) on May 18.
