What people say about a New Museum on the North Shore!

Eric Jamieson

I have had a love affair with museums all my life; you can imagine my excitement at the prospect of a new museum in the historic Pipe Shop on our waterfront.  Visible and vital, it will showcase our past and inform our future.

A new museum on the North Vancouver waterfront will add immensely to the public realm and amenities of North Vancouver. It will add much to the interest in making the waterfront, a great walkable area that will attract locals and visitors from afar.

The North Shore really needs family oriented, educational venues like this museum.  Accessible to everyone and showcasing our stories; it is exciting that we will soon have a facility that will truly bring North Shore history to life.

Museums are places where communities discover themselves: their history, their diversity, their identity. I am very excited about the possibilities for discovery that a new museum on the North Vancouver waterfront will bring.
