As the weather starts to get colder, we start to bundle up and think of ways to spend our free time indoors. Join us at the Museum this season to warm up and treat yourself.
Museum winter hours: Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Deck the Halls
We’re officially getting decorated and ready to greet our guests for the holidays on November 26th! We’re trimming the tree, singing holiday songs, and putting up all our traditional décor to welcome you into the Museum this season. This is officially our kick-off to the holidays!
After we’ve decked the halls, we will have our holiday look and find available for our guests. We will also have hands-on items that can help you get an idea of what went into decorating for the holidays in the past! We have pomanders and popcorn strings that you can help us make for our tree! We will also have a craft table set up with some colouring for you to take part in during the holiday season.
Christmas in Pitt Meadows
This event draws a crowd every year. Hosted by the City of Pitt Meadows, this event is full of holiday cheer and fun! The Museum will be in attendance and ready to ring in the holidays! We’re bringing a snow day to you. We will be bringing a make-your-own snowman to take home, and while you’re there play with our homemade snow! Don’t forget to bring your food bank donation!
December 1st, 4-8 p.m. at šxʷhék̓ ʷnəs (Spirit Square) and the Pitt Meadows Family Recreation Centre

CPKC Holiday Train
The CPKC Holiday Train is back! This year it pulls into Pitt Meadows on December 17th at 8:55! We keep our one of our sites open to greet all the visitors who attend the train. It is a good moment to come inside from the cold and warm up while learning about Pitt Meadows! Just look for the open doors and lights on and come inside.
The CPCK Holiday train has been decked out in Christmas lights and stops right on Harris Road beside the Museum. It has a beautiful light show and then musicians who entertain the crowd. Unfortunately, there is no riding the train it is all meant to be enjoyed from the safety of the street. (Don’t forget Harris Road shuts down before the event so arrive early!)
We will also have a craft table and some stickers to colour! Drop by from 7:30 P.M. to just after the train departs to enjoy the warmth and cheer of the Museum!
Don’t forget to bring your foodbank donation!

Our Museum Sunday kits are getting a festive makeover this season as well!

We might have a few extra kits available for other holiday crafts so be sure to drop by and look at the kits we currently have available!

These fun little bags are great to keep your kids entertained for an afternoon during winter break!

Back again this year, our Victorian Christmas kits bring back some holiday fun of past years. We have a limited number of kits available on a first come first serve basis. If you want to secure yourself a kit, be sure to come early!
The kits include candle making (you receive enough wax and wicks to make a small green tapered candle and a small red pillar candle),a booklet full of our Christmas tutorials such as butter making, illumination, a mechanical paper animal craft and more! These are perfect stocking stuffers for children, or for a fun activity to do as a family. Bring home the magic of the Christmas past with these fun activities and support your local museum while making holiday crafts!
