The Museum’s collection contains many different types of objects including First Nation artifacts, industrial artifacts and tools, works of art, domestic implements, clothing and uniforms, personal items, sports equipment and trophies, as well as historic vehicles.
Collections Review Project
At present, the Museum is reviewing its collections for relevance and quality, and to ensure that every object in the permanent collections has a direct connection to North Vancouver. All items are being inventoried and the collection will be selectively reduced according to criteria in our Collections Policy. The process of downsizing the collection is a multi-year project funded by the City and the District of North Vancouver. NVMA staff will suggest items for removal from the collection. Approval from the Director, the NVMA Commission and the Councils of the City and the District of North Vancouver must be received before materials are deaccessioned. Museum Collections Project FAQs
