The Gabriola Museum is opening this Sunday, May 18, at 1:00 p.m. with music, refreshments and fun for kids. We’re celebrating the new exhibit Gabriola Tides: Stories of Silva Bay. It is a multi-media exhibit with filmed interviews, artifacts and photos, and explores this boating community from early days to the present.

Our second exhibit, BeachQuest, also focuses on Gabriola’s shores - our amazing and diverse marine life. Two community grants have enabled the museum to create this family-friendly exhibit, with a guide book for exploring Gabriola’s beaches. Kits with guidebooks and magnifying glasses will be available for loan to groups and families.

Come for the fun! Dress like a sailor, a pirate or a sea star!
