Museum Remembrance Week: Honour Canada’s
military veterans by visiting the Remembrance Week exhibit hosted by the
Nanaimo Museum and the Vancouver Island Military Museum. The exhibit will run
from Monday, Nov. 7 to Thursday, Nov. 10 at the Nanaimo Museum by the Nanaimo Conference Center. Visitors will
get a glimpse into the lives of those who served our county through
a display of local photos, uniforms, war medals, and war time artifacts. The
Remembrance week exhibit at the Nanaimo Museum commemorates the contributions
of the Canadian service men and women who protected our rights and freedoms.
The exhibit will feature the war time experiences of people on Vancouver Island. It includes a gas mask
designed for children and stored under school desks in preparation for bomb
threats, to photos of Nanaimo’s military camp during World War II. Artifacts
such as model aircraft and a model ship will be on display. For more
