Fall 2019

This fall at Nose Creek Valley Museum (NCVM) is a busy one. Be sure not to miss the final days of the museum’s newest exhibit, Can You Dig It? Created by Carrie Allen and Laurie Harvey, the exhibit showcases archaeology in a Nose Creek Valley wayusing artifacts from their collection, as well as replicas of museum pieces created by Allen. Can You Dig It? provides visitors with a snapshot of world archaeology – from treasure hunting, to scientific pursuit, to Hollywood. Find out what modern archaeologists really do in this fascinating multicultural exhibit featuring museum-quality replicas of artwork from around the globe. The exhibit will be open until the end of October. 

Also this fall the museum will be hosting blacksmith demonstrations in the parking lot. Learn how this art form melds metal with talent to create something uniquely manmade. Dates are still to be determined. 

The next exhibit will have a holiday theme  Our Christmas Bucket ListStart a new Christmas tradition with this charming exhibit featuring Baby Jesus, spices, Krampus, presents, food and Santa Claus Nov. 14 to January 2020. Jam packed with colour, light, and family-friendly holiday fun, this is an interactive Christmas extravaganza you definitely do not want to miss. 

Don’t forget to ask about the Junior Curator Program, a fun and educational program that aims to teach young people about working at a museum, in a hands-on environment. Participants meet once a month with workshops in between meetings. This summer workshops were held on Celtic painting, carving, bookbinding and calligraphy for children in the community age seven to 15 and Junior Curators assisted with the workshops.
