Find Out Fridays at the Museum!
The Mennonite Heritage Museum is excited to invite you to a free Main Exhibit Tour with Docent Helen Rose Pauls! The Mennonite story is one of an enduring Christian faith throughout an often tumultuous history. The Mennonite sojourn from the Netherlands to Poland (later Prussia) and then to Russia (later the Soviet Union), is one of joy sorrow, stability, and turmoil. Persecution, exile, and martyrdom failed to extinguish the hope and perseverance the Mennonites have shown throughout their history. Settlement in Canada and, in particular, the Fraser Valley, has allowed the Mennonite story to take root and flourish. After your tour, dive deeper into Mennonites immigration story through self-exploration of our main exhibits, including digital media testimonials. For a taste of traditional Mennonite comfort food visit our Café between 10:00am-3:00pm Tuesday-Friday. Lunch is served between 11:15am & 1:15pm.
This event is free and will be accepting optional pay-what-you-may donations for admission.
