Family Day at the Cranbrook History Centre

February 13, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm


Free Admission to the Cranbrook History Centre is available on Family Day!

Activities include:

  • A clue-based scavenger hunt for the whole family to enjoy
  • Prizes for everyone who can discover the secret message
  • A new Young Historians family history activity

Who are Young Historians?

Do you like to tell stories and to learn about the past? Do you always ask questions about the world around you? If so, you would make a great Young Historian!

This Family Day weekend, we invite all our curious Young Historians to share their own histories with us.  At the Cranbrook History Centre’s pop-up Family Memories booth, bring your family in to record your OWN history. Young Historians will ask their family members questions and share their own stories about what happened in the past year.

Your stories are important!

Young Historians who share their memories can help the Cranbrook History Centre to record what the last year has been like in Cranbrook for future generations. Share you stories about what your life has been like under lockdown and your experiences with social restrictions. We will be preserving your recordings in our archive to save the memories of what living through the pandemic was like for the families of Cranbrook and the East Kootenay.

All Young Historians will receive a digital copy of your story after your visit, so that you can hold onto your memories for the future.

Do you plan on staying home this Family Day?

You can still participate in the Young Historians program online. Instructions for how to participate will be available from Friday February 12th, 2021.
We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia that makes this program possible.
