Heritage Week: Family Fun at the Alberni Valley Museum

February 19 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Visit the Alberni Valley Museum for family fun on February 19th from 12-3. Experience our newly-installed travelling exhibit The Ones We Met and partake in crafts and activities. Snack provided.

The fate of Sir John Franklin’s 1845 expedition was one of the Arctic’s most enduring mysteries, until the wrecks of HMS Erebus and HMS Terror were found in 2014 and 2016. The Alberni Valley Museum is pleased to present The Ones We Met – Inuit Traditional Knowledge and the Franklin Expedition, an exhibition developed by the Canadian Museum of History and the Inuit Heritage Trust, which explores the role of Inuit oral history in solving that mystery.

The Ones We Met – Inuit Traditional Knowledge and the Franklin Expedition is a travelling exhibition developed by the Canadian Museum of History in partnership with the Inuit Heritage Trust. Presented in Inuktitut, Inuinnaqtun, English and French — the four official languages of Nunavut — the exhibition will be on display at the Alberni Valley Museum from February 8th to May 11th.
