A New Museum for North Vancouver
Say ‘yes’ to...
• a new kind of museum on the waterfront! Located in the “Pipe Shop” at The Shipyards, it will be a lively, interactive gathering place for all ages. A place where our children and grandchildren can discover their community’s past and explore its present. Two floors of innovative exhibits and interactive displays will encourage visitors to return again and again.
• a new source of tourism value in our community. Economic benefits will be enjoyed by area restaurants and retailers. Spill-over attendance will spark visits to community events and cultural attractions. Outreach programs will help animate public spaces.
• a plan to create a 21st century museum for North Vancouver. Exhibit design and business plans will soon be presented to City Council. If the go-ahead is granted, it will bring life to a vision that makes our museum a valued community gathering place for years to come.
• a funding plan that will make it all come together. The cost is expected to be approximately $10 million—with some coming from the municipality. With other sources of operating revenue made possible by the new museum, annual municipal grants are targeted to remain the same as now.
