Experience our Unique Venue

School & Youth Museum Tours

We welcome school and youth tours. Please call the Manager/Curator to make arrangements. A variety of grade-level worksheets are available. Specific programs have been developed for Secondary School classes, particularly on the subject areas of immigration, First Nations and World War I. Other curriculum based tours can be designed in consultation with teachers. Scouting and Girl Guide groups are also welcome and we have programs designed to complete badge requirements. All other youth groups are welcome. Youth and school tours are by donation.

Group Museum Tours

Group tours of adults and/or youth are very welcome. To have a tour planned specifically for your group, call the Manager/Curator to make arrangements. Groups are welcome to use our large public space for a meeting, then have a tour of the museum and/or a talk on some aspect of local history – maybe even the history of your group or organization! Group tours are available for $2 per person, or more if refreshments are provided.

Birthday Parties

Looking for a unique venue for your child’s party? The Museum offers party activities for $50. Additional fees will apply for parties over 8 children. We have a variety of activities and crafts to provide some unique entertainment for your children and their guests.

We can accommodate parties of up to 12 children from ages 5 to 12. Activities can be geared for different ages. Most programs last from 1 to 1 and 1/2 hours. After the chosen activity, the guests can move to the location of your choice for any party food or other activities.

Please book at least 3 weeks in advance. Dates are subject to availability of staff.

Some of the activities include: Gold Rush Treasure Hunt; Mystery of the Carnes Creek Nugget (a giant board game); a ghostly downtown heritage tour; crafts and other activities. We can customize the party around the interests of your children and their friends.
