Imagine….A New Museum on the North Shore

Don’t take our word for it…

What people say about a New Museum on the North Shore!

Eric Jamieson

I have had a love affair with museums all my life; you can imagine my excitement at the prospect of a new museum.  Visible and vital, it will showcase our past and inform our future.

Appealing to people of all ages, the new museum will showcase significant North Vancouver City and District events in an innovative, interactive and inspiring way. I am especially looking forward to presentations, exhibits, and stories that record the history of North Vancouver schools as well as team and individual sports accomplishments. What a fabulous project!

The North Shore really needs family oriented, educational venues like this museum.  Accessible to everyone and showcasing our stories; it is exciting that we will soon have a facility that will truly bring North Shore history to life.

Museums are places where communities discover themselves: their history, their diversity, their identity. I am very excited about the possibilities for discovery that a new museum will bring.
