Holiday Hours
December 25 and January 1: Closed

Closing on Wednesday allows for an extra day to clean and take care of the museum and collections without visitors in the galleries.

While restarting our activities has most of us breathing a little more easily, the many people in communities across our province are still keeping a close eye on their health and feeling the strain of isolation. We recognize that.  We are reserving 10:00 am–11:00 am daily for seniors, vulnerable people and first responders to visit.
