Surrey Museum introduces new theme for kids gallery

A free family event with a puppeteer, face painting, performances and the Re-enactors on deck for Oct. 1 re-launch of popular kids gallery.

The Surrey Museum is inviting families to join them in celebrating the opening of the latest theme in the sustainability focused Kids Gallery. With new interactives focused on food, where it comes from and how it impacts the environment, the Kids Gallery at the Surrey Museum will re-launch on Saturday, Oct. 1 from 1-4 p.m.

The free, family friendly event will feature a puppeteer, face painting and performances and interactions with Surrey’s heritage re-enactment troupe, The Re-enactors. The Friends of the Surrey Museum and Archives Society and the Cloverdale Lions will also be selling burgers and hot dogs to raise funds for the Museum expansion.

The fully interactive Kids Gallery has been very popular since its opening in October 2015, featuring a tree house, a play farm house, a pipe wall and many other interactives to keep children of all ages engaged as they learn.

“We expect the play garden to be a great addition for toddlers,” explains Lynn Saffery. “They can plant wooden carrots and other veggies while their older siblings take in the interactive on another level, learning about the environmental impact of greenhouses versus farmer fields.”

The much anticipated expansion of the Surrey Museum, scheduled to begin in January 2017, will see the Kids Gallery triple in size, allowing more stimulating and fun activities for children of various ages.

The Surrey Museum is located at 17710-56A Avenue. It’s open Tuesdays to Fridays from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. Closed Mondays and statutory holidays. Admission sponsored by Friends of the Surrey Museum Society. For more information, call 604-592-6956 or visit www.surrey.ca/heritage.
