A chance to “get up close and personal with history” will be made available every third Thursday evening of the month by the Red Deer Museum and Art Gallery.
The first Look, Mix, Do event happens this Thursday with a number of Inuit items being brought out from the museum’s collection for a closer, hands-on examination by members of the public.
Since the 7 to 9 p.m. program, aimed at those age 16 and older, is tied to the Arctic-themed travelling exhibit from the Canadian Museum of Civilization and Museum of Nature showing at the Red Deer museum, the title of this week’s event is Surviving Boredom on an Arctic Expedition.
It will include activities that test your skill and sense of adventure. “We’ve taken a rather intense situation and designed some fun things around the theme,” said Kim Verrier, visitor experience co-ordinator at the museum.
“This is your chance to come with family or friends, make a team and join the fun.”
Exploring history in unique ways is the aim of the Look, Mix, Do programs.
Refreshments will be available and regular museum admission fees apply.
