Comox Museum exhibits available for online viewing

Visit all the Comox Museum exhibits from your home, on its website

Although the doors to the Comox Archives and Museum are still closed due to COVID-19, staff have been busy photographing the current exhibit and displaying it online.

“Please take the time to visit us at www.comoxmuseum.ca,” said Pam Moughton, chair of the society. “There is a lot of information about the history of Comox and many intriguing photographs. It may even help with homeschooling projects.”

View the evolution of Comox through aerial photos and timeline descriptions. There are also many interesting artifacts and an exhibit of vintage wedding gowns on display online. “Planning your wedding for next year may be top of your list and our wedding dresses dating back to 1910 could give some ideas,” said Moughton.

The Comox Archives and Museum Society (CAMS) Board is meeting soon to decide when and how it will be safe to open to the public.

“In the meantime have some fun and visit our website,” said Moughton. “And just a reminder, we are still collecting your memories of this pandemic to archive for the future. Please email them to comoxmuseum@shaw.ca. We look forward to seeing you soon.”
