There will be free admission, balloons and door prize draws.
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.
