NVMA’s Social Media Program!

The Museum & Archives is active on a host of social media platforms. Each platform features different information. To learn about what is happening with the NVMA or to explore a few North Van stories check Facebook. It is great to read how long time North Vancouverites react to those posts. Look to Instagram for photos of what is happening and for unique archival images related to community interests and topic. On Twitter you will find short news feeds from this community and in the arts. Our Pinterest account provides educators with updates on our programs for schools.
