Sasha Striegler Ianone Museum Curator

Vanderhoof Museum update with Sasha

The Vanderhoof Community Museum was glad to participate in National Health &Fitness Day this past Saturday, June 3rd. Bike races were followed by a successful treasure hunt for children ages 4-8 and 8-12. Did you miss the action? Would you like to try your hand at a history-themed scavenger hunt? Come on down to the museum and they will be happy to send you on your way!

In addition, the museum is now offering guided tours! Visit the information centre in the Board of Trade—the square, white building nearest to the highway. The museum’s historical interpreters would be happy to share their knowledge and enthusiasm with you as they take you through the years of Vanderhoof history. And if you’ve already visited? Be sure to check back throughout the summer! Many displays are undergoing renovation or are being prepared from entirely new materials, so expect to see changes as the season progresses.

If you would like to book a tour, enquire about displays, or have any questions at all, please contact the museum at 250-567-3374 or curator@district.vanderhoof.ca.
