Event description

Description

You are invited to help the Rossland Museum & Discovery Centre celebrate the completion of Phase I of the Renewal Project! It has been a long time since we began the process to redevelop our Museum, and we are going to have a cocktail party on Friday, June 30th, to commemorate all the hard work!

From 5-7pm, the Museum will be open to the public for a special Cocktail Event to celebrate the success of Phase I of the Renewal Project. Listen to classical music in the entrance gallery and peruse the new exhibits - including a Canada 150, Rossland 120, and Museum 50th celebratory exhibit. Dignitaries will speak about the completed project as patrons enjoy a beverage and appetizers. Museum board members and staff will be on deck to answer any of your questions about the six-phase Renewal Project.
This event and the anniversary exhibits are made possible by Teck Trail Operations and the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th, a collaboration between LeRoi Community Foundation, the Government of Canada, and extraordinary leaders from coast to coast to coast.


Did You Know that the Museum opened at its current site on July 4th, 1967? What better way to mark this milestone than with a ceremonial ribbon-cutting at the newly renovated Rossland Museum & Discovery Centre. This event will take place on Tuesday, July 4th at 11am. Please join us for refreshments, history, and a special ceremony!

The Museum Renewal Project Phase I has been funded in part by the Western Economic Diversification Canada, the Columbia Basin Trust, the BC | Canada 150: Celebrating B.C. Communities and their Contributions to Canada
Fund, the Government of British Columbia, the City of Rossland, the Government of Canada, the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary, the Southern Interior Development Initiative Trust, Teck Trail Operations, and the huge support from the community of Rossland and our members and supporters around the world! For more information, please visit our contributors page.

In celebration of Canada’s 150th, the Canadian Coasters will be stopping in throughout the day on July 4th on their coast to coast classic vehicle tour across Canada.
