As the Museum prepares to open its new exhibit on BC's gold rush, archivist Ann ten Cate will take a behind-the-scenes look at how the exhibit is being produced. The journey from the beginnings of an idea to a finished product is a long, collaborative process between curatorial, design and exhibit production staff - and there are inevitably a few bumps along the way. But bringing BC history to life for an audience that includes children, non-English speakers, and visitors with many different learning styles has been fun. 2:00 - 3:30 PM $5 admission, free for Friends of the BC Archives
