Join us for the opening of the Richmond Museum’s fascinating new exhibition, Reinventing Richmond, and explore how the city’s identity has changed over time. The exhibit gallops through time introducing visitors to the pioneering farmers, hardworking fishermen, daring aviators, intrepid housewives and enterprising visionaries who repeatedly recreated the city. The exhibition opens to the public Saturday, September 25 at 10 a.m. in conjunction with the Culture Days activities at the Richmond Cultural Centre. Visitors of all ages will get hands-on with interactive exhibits, meeting Lulu Sweet (the American actor who gave her name to Lulu Island), testing themselves in a Richmond-based game of chutes and ladders, and brainstorming new city slogans! Enjoy the new exhibit and get hands on with new interactive displays and spark curiosity with a children's scavenger hunt. At this time, masks are mandatory while inside the Richmond Museum and Richmond Cultural Centre. Occupancy limits will follow the most up to date Provincial recommendations for indoor gatherings.

Organized by

Richmond Museum

The Richmond Museum aims to inspire curiosity about our community’s history while exploring our place in the world. We invite visitors, students and educators to come on a journey of discovery with us. As museum storytellers, collectors and educators, our goal is to create moments of wonder and understanding. Our exhibitions tell the many stories of Richmond; our collections show how we live, past and present; our education programs open minds, young and old; and our work translates into action for a healthy community and planet. The Richmond Museum collects, documents, researches, preserves, exhibits and interprets objects of historical and cultural significance to the development and history of Richmond
