As a non-profit society, the Nakusp & District Museum relies on grants and donations to operate. Donations allow us to take on new projects, and improvements; for example, this past year, we were able to remove the fiberboard covers from the windows, and replace them with UV blocking glass units; which allows natural light in to brighten the space, while also protecting the artifacts from exposure. As well, during the off-season we were able to replace the old ceiling tiles with bright, ornate paneling and update the lighting units.
Donations will go towards bringing projects and future events into reality, expanding our artifact collection, engaging the community, providing youth employment opportunities, and improving the museum as a whole.
The museum is dedicated to depicting early village life from the First Peoples, to settlers and miners, and the more recent flood story. We are always looking for donations of local artifacts from the area’s history. Before you discard those old treasures, keep the museum in mind. Bring items by the museum in person, or call us at 250-265-0015.
We appreciate each and every donation, and encourage donors to become Members as well to keep informed about upcoming projects, changes, and events.
