Drawing in the young crowds to the Rossland Museum

Last week the Rossland Grade 4 class participated in the children's version of the program Mining and Moguls: Rossland's Ski Story.

The Ski Interpretive Program at the Rossland Museum is drawing in crowds, including young people, to its new winter exhibit.

On Thursday last week the Rossland School Grade 4 class participated in the children’s version of the new program Mining and Moguls: Rossland’s Ski Story.

The kids also took part in the writing exchange the museum has going on with the Royal B.C. Museum called Provincial Wonder.

“It was great to have a group of interested and engaged kids. They were a real pleasure to have,” said Michele Skuce, museum assistant for the Rossland Historical Museum and Archives Association.

Kids from the museum in Rossland will be sending letters or stories about snow to the kids at the Royal B.C. Museum in Victoria and the children in Victoria will be sending letters here to Rossland about the ocean (which will also be displayed at the Rossland Museum).

There are about five writing stations set up in the museum, said Skuce, and all of the letters are being sent off on Feb. 18 and will be on display Feb. 23 in Victoria.

“We are working to develop more school programs to meet the requests of our local schools,” she said. “Seven Summits Centre for Learning has also been up recently to find out about how they can access the museum resources.”
