Museum Alive! Open House

YELLOWKNIFE (November 26, 2013) – The Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre (PWNHC) is pleased to announce the Museum Alive! Open House – a fantastic opportunity to see the museum come to life and experience contemporary NWT culture in an interactive way.

Visitors of all ages are invited to attend the event on Sunday, December 1, between 12 – 4pm to enjoy storytelling in the Aviation and Discovery Galleries, live music provided by the Fiddlecats, hand games, crafts, a photo booth, refreshments, and much more.

Exhibits will be brought to life by PWNHC staff and special guest interpreters, providing fascinating information and facts about the exhibits and artifacts that can be found at the museum. There will also be an opportunity for visitors to bring their old photos of family and friends to be digitized by NWT Archives.

“We are excited to invite the community for a peek behind the scenes at the museum,” says Barb Cameron, Director of the PWNHC. “Museum Alive! focuses on the art and skills of keeping culture and heritage alive with exhibits featuring stories and demonstrations from museum staff and local experts. If you have not yet had the chance to visit the museum, or want to experience it in a different way, this will be a great opportunity.”

This open house is part of the museum’s Amazing Family Sundays series of events happening throughout the fall in Yellowknife.
