Learn

We invite you to learn with the museum! We offer educational programs, provincial curriculum-based, JK to Grade 12. It is an excellent opportunity to experience interactive learning on a variety of subjects, such as Canadian History (1883 to present), Physical Education, Mathematics, etc.

Currently only our digital education is available. As we are navigating the COVID-19 crisis, material that supports remote learning has been developed. Please feel free to use any of the activity sheets available on Digital Education below or contact our Public Programmer for lessons delivered on Moodle, and for Online Guided Tours.

It is to be noted that our digital activites and lessons are only available in English.

We look forward to returning to our onsite programming once it is safe to do so.

Feel free to explore our variety of digital education programs. Contact the Public Programmer if you have any questions.
