A New Year, a New Direction

The Museum of the Cariboo Chilcotin is excited to begin its new year with a new direction. Our focus is to develop a rich and expansive new exhibit space that communicates and situates the Cariboo Chilcotin’s long and interesting heritage to a broad audience. As part of this initiative, we are redesigning our online presence while also expanding and enhancing our education outreach programming. This will see the museum create a much more robust image and role among the broader community.

If you have questions about the museum’s direction for the 2017-2018 year, please do not hesitate to contact us at 250-392-7404 or
