Fort St. John North Peace Museum Update: Canada Day Tours Draw Massive Crowds


Volunteers and staff enjoyed celebrating Canada Day with a huge crowd at the museum.

579 people visited our indoor exhibits and enjoyed our Royal BC Museum traveling exhibit, Our living languages, which examines what First Nations communities across the province are doing to help 34 different languages ​​survive and thrive.

407 people enjoyed our outdoor buildings and many tried our photo and question based scavenger hunts and won prizes. Kids and families weren’t the only ones enjoying it. We also had enthusiastic teenagers and adults!

It was great to see people learning more about Canadian history at the local level.

Our Woodlawn Cemetery Tour is Friday, July 22 at 7 p.m.

Meet the man who walked more than 800 miles to Fort St. John, a female beaver fishing champion, and Fort St. John’s (and presumably Canada’s) first Chinese city councilman. Visits are $10 at the cemetery.

Our last cemetery visit of the summer is on Friday August 5the at 7 p.m. at the main cemetery at 100e Aveand focuses on local connections to the Alaska Highway.
