Have you ever noticed the history signs around town?
The Museum at Campbell River is encouraging families to get outdoors and learn more about the city’s history, while entering to win some prizes.
It’s inviting you to have a closer look at the signs with its new, family-friendly Trivia Trek challenge.
Developed in partnership with the city, the signs tell some stories of five regions around town, including the Spit, Campbellton, Downtown, Pier Street and Willow Point.
“With all of the changes with COVID-19, we can’t have our usual fall programming at the Museum,” promotions coordinator Erika Anderson says. “This gave us the chance to bring our programming out into the community.”
Each week, until November 9th, a blog post that includes a map of the featured area’s signs and some trivia questions will be posted to the Museum’s website.
Once you have the map and questions, you can trek to the signs for answers.
For answers that you can’t find on the signs, the Museum’s current exhibit, “Snapshots of Campbell River Through Time” has more information that may be useful. From now until November 9th, anyone headed to the Museum with their Trivia Trek form gets free admission to the exhibits.
If you don’t have access to a printer, the questions and maps can be picked up at the reception desk.
Once you return your form, either by email or in person, there’s an opportunity to enter a draw for a gift basket from the Museum Shop. And, for the downtown section, the Museum has partnered with the Downtown BIA for an additional prize draw.
