Currently, due to COVID-19, we have removed our Hands On items from the gallery until further notice.
The Pitt Meadows Museum holds several hundred items in our "Hands On" collection. This collection is available to the public to use while at the Museum. Within this collection are objects and tools like cooking implements, scrub boards, wringers, bit, brace, hand drills, stove, hair curlers, clothing irons and much more. The Museum also has other items such as phonographs, various slate records, scales, toys, games, sewing machines and typewriters.
Drop by some time to test, touch and hold history in your hands!
The Pitt Meadows Museum has hands on activities at both the General Store and the Hoffman and Son site. At the General Store site there are discovery boxes filled with artifacts, items, historical information and activities with specific themes pertaining to Pitt Meadows history and children's activities.
Examples of Discovery Boxes in the collection are:
Prattle about Cattle
Hailing from Holland
Magic made visible
These teaching tools are available for use at or to borrow from the Museum. Included in each box is a teacher's guide to assist with using the box to its maximum potential. Please contact us for further information.
