Bring the whole family! The Museum at Campbell River presents Heritage Puppet Theatre shows beginning June 23, and summer students Delaney Sullivan, Kyle Rosenke and Melissa Kubinec are excited about bringing Campbell River history to life through the puppets and their stories.

Some of the characters you will have the pleasure of meeting are the forgetful Fred Nunns, the moody Captain Vancouver and the ferocious Ripple Rock.

Cost is $2 per person with children under three years of age free. For group of 13 or more, pay $25.

Performances are at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday until the end of August. Shows run for 20 minutes and are followed by an entertaining craft class. At each showing, children receive a puppet passport, which is stamped every time they attend.  Once they have collected five stamps, the next puppet show is free.

While at the museum, also check out Active History Afternoons (A.H.A’s) – offering an interactive and engaging view of our region’s history. Let us walk you through the evolution of the logging industry, a day in the life of a pioneer, the development of the fishing industry, and more. AHA programs are from 1-4 p.m.; most Mondays and Fridays from June 27 to the end of August.

The Museum offers free admission to Campbell River residents.
