The Quesnel Museum offers a range of fun and educational programs for children, youth, and families. Our school programs relate to the provincial curriculum and provide students with an unforgettable experience. Discussion, observation, and hands-on experience with "touchables" are essential components of these programs.
These programs might take you on an archaeological dig or on an expedition with Simon Fraser and his crew. You can learn about Chinese residents in Quesnel through photographic images and recorded oral interviews or build an understanding of our local First Nations' rich past by listening to elders stories. See how everyday items from the past have changed and have an opportunity to touch and play with these artifacts. Experience life as a pioneer or discover what it is like to be a museum curator.
Our self-guided scavenger hunts are designed to highlight not only specific artifacts, but the historical relevance of each. They incorporate a range of ages and abilities and are a fun way for the family or class to get to know the Museum.
Our desire is to share our knowledge, experience, and the history of Quesnel with community members of any age.
