MUSEUM RESOURCES & INFORMATION

Museum History

The purpose of the Nelson and District Museum, Archives, Art Gallery and Historical Society is to run a sustainable, integrated organization that actively promotes, through exhibitions and programming, the knowledge, appreciation and understanding of history and art.

Volunteering at the Nelson Museum

Volunteers are the heart of the organization, and contribute to the success, efficiency, and enjoyment of the Museum. Volunteers are crucial to the digitization of City of Nelson archival records, obituaries, and searchable databases. They also play a key role at the Front Desk, where over 12 Visitor Services volunteers greet our visitors with a smile! We thank all of our current and past volunteers for their dedication and service.
