Campbell River museum summer hours and admissions changes

New this year is a designated free admissions day every Wednesday for those who live in the entire collection area

The Museum at Campbell River heralds the arrival of summer with a change in hours beginning on International Museum Day, Saturday, May 18.

The Museum will be open every day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. until the end of September.

New this year is a designated free admissions day every Wednesday for those who live in the entire collection area, which encompasses the North Central Island from Oyster River to the north end of the island, to Gold River to the west, and includes the Discovery Islands and Bella Bella.

This replaces the complimentary community pass that was previously extended to City of Campbell River residents only.

Free admission year round also comes with your paid Museum membership.

Another advantage members enjoy is a 10 per cent discount at the Shop, and a 10 per cent discount off the cost of programs.

To join, either come into the Museum at 470 Island Highway, call 250-287-3103 or apply through the website: www.crmusem.ca, under About Us.

Current members can now renew through the website as well.
