The Courtenay Museum on Fourth St. is having a special July 1st open house

Courtenay Museum offers special activities on Canada Day

On Canada Day, drop by the Courtenay and District Museum after the parade and help celebrate our country’s birthday.

There will be free admission, balloons and door prize draws between noon and 4 p.m.

Special activities planned for the day include live music and crafts for the kids.

While you’re at the museum enjoying the air-conditioned comfort, take a few moments to check out the new exhibit on the second floor. “Gold Mountain Dream: Bravely Venture into the Fraser Valley” is a travelling exhibition on loan from the Royal British Columbia Museum.

Canada Day is a great chance to explore history at the museum.

The Courtenay and District Museum is located at 207 Fourth Street in downtown Courtenay. FMI: 250-334-0686 ext 2.
