Sugarcoated – A magical musical theatre show for all ages!

Sugar and Spice and everything….not so nice!

Gallery Event: Fernie Treasures and Curiosities at the Fernie Museum

Event Time: No time set / Event Location: In Town

There is intrigue in the vaults of a museum!

The fascination of historic objects is the foundation for museum collections. Objects make us wonder: “Who made this? Where was it made and used? What stories are there about the people associated with the object? Are the stories happy or sad, inspiring or confusing?” The Fernie Museum has almost 10,000 artifacts in its Cultural History Collection that relate to the human history of the Elk Valley.

The objects reflect stories of commerce, immigration, education, community services, religion, transportation, military service, diversity and the personal lives of individuals who chose to live here. Members of the Fernie community will select 150 treasures and curiosities from the vaults and each individual will reflect on the importance of the object to Fernie’s history and share how the objects, or their stories, are relevant to their lives today.

Free admission | Wine and cheese reception | cash bar | All welcome

Exhibit on display until March 31, 2018.

Part of the Canada150 Cultural Series jointly presented by the Fernie Museum and the Fernie Art Station.
