Museum Mash!

One of our favourite programs! Museum Mash is held twice a year in the spring and fall, welcoming everyone from the smallest to the tallest to the Nelson Museum!


March 10, 2024 to March 10, 2024

The spring edition of Museum Mash is just around the corner! Join us for an all-day party designed with kids in mind, where visitors can explore music with April Lavine, make sock puppets and put on a show, read along with Nicole Purvis, get creative with cardboard box forts, play mega Jenga, and more!

Children are so often told that museums and galleries are places to be  quiet, keep your hands to yourself, walk, and never play; Museum Mash is one of our favourite programs because it provides the space for kids to be kids and shows them that museums and galleries aren’t devoid of movement and sound but are in fact exceptional places of learning and fun.

The doors open at 10 am on Sunday, March 10, with activities and performances scheduled throughout the day, until 3 pm.
