Comox Archives and Museum Society (CAMS) is once again inviting the community to join in celebrating BC Family Day.
“The museum is all about community and the celebration of our rich history,” said CAMS president Pam Moughton. “Our goal is to bring more families into the museum, particularly with children. To this end we are creating Family Day activities with children in mind.”
Featuring material created in collaboration with School District 71, activities and displays will take children and their families on a journey through time in which clothing is the focus. Starting with the natural resources used by Indigenous people, the impact of European contact will be explored, through to a modern perspective on clothing.
Family Day celebrations take place at Comox Museum, Monday Feb. 17, from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Admission is free. The day includes hands-on activities for children, vintage wedding dresses from 1910 to 1967, and the evolution of Comox through photos and artifacts. There is also the opportunity to explore your family tree and create your own coat of arms shield.
Refreshments are provided and all are welcome.
Comox Museum is located opposite the Comox Mall at 1729 Comox Ave.
