I am excited to have started up the Mobile Museum presentations again! Feburary and March dates are 90% fully booked and I am currently reserving Tour dates into April, May, and June of 2023. Although dates are limited this year, their are several dates still available at this time. Please reach out to secure your preferred dates ASAP.
Here some of the 2022-23 BC Artifacts Mobile Museum Tour information and pricing for your convenience:
School Tour Information: The Mobile Museum sets up in your school. (In most cases in the school library).
The Mobile Museum Tour consists of an extensive collection of authentic BC Pioneer, First Nations, Gold Rush and Fur Trade Artifacts that the students can view, touch and discuss during and after a very informative Power Point presentation. (7 standard size tables are needed for display and the use of school projector for Power Point presentation is also helpful)
There is generally plenty of interaction and questions with the audience during the presentation to keep them engaged.
Audience size: I have found it is best to keep the groups under 35* students per presentation. This provides the best presentation results and time for student questions and access to the artifact displays.
Presentation length: The individual presentations are generally 45-60min in length. 60 min per group is ideal.
The tours are suited for all ages of students in Kindergarten through Grade 12.
Setup time: of an 1 ½ hours is needed before the first presentation can take place. There is no cost for this I just need early access to the school presentation area.
Due to the number of materials used in my presentations and the set-up time necessary, I am unable to change rooms between presentations. If multiple dates are required, it is appreciated if displays can be left securely overnight.
I can no longer carry the materials up stairs so main floor access is needed or an elevator to access the presentation floor area.
All presentations taking place on a single day must be accommodated within one space. I appreciate your understanding.

Costs for travel outside the lower mainland will vary based on the expenses, travel time($0.50 per/km with the first 50km free), and any accommodation required.2-hour small group single presentation session for 35 students or less is $300.00 + GST.

Booking now for late Fall, Winter & Spring 2022/2023
After the long Covid 19 Pandemic shut down and recovering from a recent back surgery, I am restarting the BC Artifacts Mobile Museum tours very soon!
Please email me about what possible dates you would like your presentations and get them reserved starting in November 2022.
So, what are the “BC Artifacts Mobile Museum Tours” all about?
It is an authentic, engaging and very exciting program presented by Tony Hardie, descendant of the Secwepemc (Shuswap) people, of the Central Interior of British Columbia. The BC Artifacts Mobile Museum Tour started traveling to BC public and private schools in 2014 throughout the lower mainland. Personalized learning designed to enrich your students’ BC Aboriginal Studies Program. I can accommodate most grade levels and have three main areas of BC History included in my displays and presentations.
They include First Nation Indigenous Artifacts as well as Gold Rush and Fur Trade era artifacts.
How much does it cost?
The cost for the entire half day of presentations is $450.00 + GST. This includes two 1hr Presentations.
Full Day presentations is $600.00 + GST. This included up to 4 1hr presentations.
A discount is available for multiple days of presenting at schools.
There is currently a fuel surcharge of $25.00 per day visited or $1.00 per km return trip. (Whichever is amount greater)
To create a highly successful visit, there are a few organizational items to consider:
-Each presentation is 45min to 1hr long.
-Limit of two presentations per half day booking. Full day Bookings have a maximum of 4 presentations.
-A morning session is 9am – 12pm. Full day is 9am-3pm.
-For schools, presentations will be divided into two parts. The first part will be an interactive talk and power Point presentation followed by the second part where students will view the displays and have the opportunity to ask more questions.
-For community groups the presentation will be a 45-minute interactive talk (PowerPoint images will also be available). Depending on the size of the group, Q&A and the opportunity to handle the artifacts will occur during the presentation or time will be reserved at the end.
-For best results, school groups should try and limit the number of participants per presentation to a normal class size (approx. 30 students.) This allows for maximum hands-on learning and time for all the questions. This can be doubled to a Maximum of 60 students if space is available and cost savings is needed.
-If your school chooses multiple presentations, we will need to set-up in one central location and have groups rotate in to see it.
-Set-up takes approx. 45 minutes before the first presentation.
-4 or 5 tables will need to be provided in the presentation area, for the artifact displays.
-A 5–10-minute break between presentations is ideal but is not mandatory.
Behavioral Expectations: In order to have a smooth presentation, we remind instructors that a certified teacher “MUST” be in the classroom during the entire presentation. Teachers will be asked to help monitor the kids during the second half of the presentation. BC Artifacts Educators defer to the classroom teacher’s classroom management and behavior codes.
Photo Policy: Photographs are encouraged during presentations; however, we request that our presentations (and stations) not be videotaped. If sharing our display images on social media, please be sure to use the Hashtags #mobilemuseum and or #bcartifactsmobilemuseum.

*I am”Bondable” with “BC Criminal Records Check” completed
Tony here. I hope you have been able to keep safe during these crazy unprecedented times of the Covid-19 Pandemic. It seams so long since I have presented to the public and students of BC.
I personally have made the choice and have been fully vaccinated. In my opinion this is the right thing to do.
I was prepared to start presenting again this Fall of 2021 but I have unfortunately recently had to have a lower back surgery. This unfortunately means I will be unable to have any tours at this time and through the Fall of 2021 as I heal and recover. I am hoping to be fully recovered and continue to share the Mobile Museum Tours again in 2022.
Please feel free to reach out and book for the New year. I am optimistic and excited to get back to sharing history and engaging students more than ever.
Hope to see you soon,
Tony Hardie/The Mobile Museum Guy
