Big thank you goes to Jonathan Rowan, Tlingit Naalx carver from Klawock, Alaska for this amazing functional Halibut Hook donation to the Mobile Museum!
It will be great to share your halibut hook, fishing culture, and pictures of Thomas with students in BC.

Hello to all BC Schools, Principals, Teachers, PACs, and Students,
Back to school for BC students and teaching staff is just around the corner with the 2017 -18 school year about to commence in just a couple of weeks.
I would like to start out this post with a massive thank you to all the Schools, Principals, PACs as well as everyone else that supported and helped to promote the new BC History Mobile Museum in 2016-17.
What an amazing year it was presenting to students and staff in over 50 different schools from Bowen Island to Lytton.
I am looking forward to presenting this year with tours planed throughout the lower mainland and other BC communities.
There are many dates still available for the upcoming school year.
Please book your school presentation date(s) early to ensure your preferred month and time.
Contact me directly or visit the Mobilemuseum.ca website for more information, pricing and booking availability.

Shannon Oaks Independent Living Seniors Home was celebrating Canada 150 with the BC Artifacts Mobile Museum. The BC history presentation and the museum displays were very well received by the residents and staff at Shannon Oaks in Vancouver this month.
The Power Point Presentation
Answering questions and listening to stories
The BC Artifacts Mobile Museum attended and displayed at the recent Collingwood Days festival in Vancouver.
This was a great event for the Mobile Museum to be a part of and for the public to view the collection displays and ask questions.
Great way to celebrate Canada’s 150th year and birthday as well as learn a little bit more about our rich and interesting British Columbia history.
NEW! Coming Soon! I am adding to the Fur Trade displays this spring Just acquired several animal furs and pelts that will enhance the Fur Trade display tables area after spring break. Special thanks goes to my friend Ken for his contributions to the Museum. #HandsOn #MobileMuseum #BCEducation #FurTrade
“Honoured to be presenting BC history on the Traditional Territory of the Katzie, Kwantlen, Kwikwetlem, Musqueam, Qayqayt, Squamish, Semiahmoo, Stó:lō, Tsawwassen, & Tsleil-Wauthuth Nations” Here are a few highlight images from a couple recent Mobile Museum Tour presentations in New Westminster at Ecole Lord Tweedsmuir Elementary and at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Elementary school in Vancouver.
The BC Mobile Museum is an engaging and hands-on learning experience mixed with good times and humor that has created a successful learning and connecting environment for students in the BC lower mainland area since 2015. It is a very valuable educational resource for all BC students from grades K to 12.

I would like to give a massive thank you to Joe Wilson Kwakwaka’wakw a Namgis Artist for supplying some new colouring projects for the 2017 student follow-up activities package.
These are typically left with the teachers for the student follow-up activities after booking the Mobile Museum Tours in 2017.
The BC Artifacts Mobile Museum Tour held a special free Power Point Presentation and artifact display at the Fraser Valley Antique and Collectable Club general meeting.
It is located at the Queensborough Community Centre 920 Ewen Ave in New Westminster and is held every second Thursday of the month.
Here are a few photos from the event and presentation…
