Public invited to share ideas on museum modernization

People in Prince George and surrounding areas are invited to attend a community meeting and share their ideas about the future of the Royal BC Museum.

At the meeting, participants will have the opportunity to view an artifact or specimen from the Royal BC Museum’s human history or natural history collections that is specific to the region.

The Royal BC Museum holds the world’s largest collection of B.C. heritage. It offers visitors the chance to explore the province’s social and environmental history and discover the events and people that have shaped B.C. The provincial government is planning to modernize the Royal BC Museum to make sure it protects B.C.’s natural and human history for generations to come.

The province is consulting with Indigenous peoples and citizens throughout B.C. to hear their views about what they expect a modernized museum experience to be. The consultation is also seeking feedback about how the museum could most effectively tell stories of B.C.’s communities and how the museum can collaborate most productively with communities around the province.

The community meeting for the northeast-central region will take place in Prince George.

Event date: Saturday, May 11, 2019

Time: 2:30 – 4:30 p.m.
Registration begins at 2 p.m.

Location:
Prince George Native Friendship Centre
Power of Friendship Hall
1600 Third Ave.

The consultation runs until June 27, 2019. For more information, or to submit ideas online, visit: https://engage.gov.bc.ca/museummodernization/
