Renovation of the Quesnel Museum Phase II

The Quesnel Museum and Visitors’ Centre completed a major renovation commencing in September 2020 and reopening in June/July 2022.  Updates includeda new front façade with an accessible and energy-efficient entrance, redesigned layout to improve traffic flow and a new year-round accessible bathroom. The “behind the scenes” space were reorganized to meet museum and public health standards, creating a meeting room and catering kitchen, an office, and a curatorial workspace. The project separated the ventilation systems for the building and the public bathrooms and also addressed drainage issues to reduce safety hazards in the winter.

This project follows recent upgrades to the area, including a  new LeBourdais Park playground, redesigned Museum and Visitors’ Centre parking area with RV parking,  and multiple Museum renovations over the last few years
