MUSEUM PASSPORT ADVENTURE 2008
In celebration of International Museum Day on May 18, 2008 Morden & Darlingford museums announced the launch of their Museum Passport Adventure 2008.
Four area museums have joined forces and are encouraging/inviting local citizens to "stay in their own backyard" this summer. All too often, we tend to take our visitors to see places and things outside our own community when we have some of the best museums/attractions in Manitoba right here in the Morden and Darlingford area. In other words, right in your own backyard! When was the last time you played tourist in your own community?
This year, for the first time, four museums from Morden and Darlingford are inviting everyone visiting or living in the Pembina Valley region to:
Visit the region's 4 museums
In 4 months (between June & September)
And collect 4 stamps
To enter 4 draws!
Once you've visited all 4 museums, you can fill out the entry form and drop it off at one of the 4 participating museums:
Canadian Fossil Discovery Centre, Morden
Manitoba Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum, Morden
Pembina Threshermen's Museum, between Morden and Winkler
Darlingford School Heritage Building & Museum, Darlingford
This Museum Passport Adventure is also a geocache opportunity. You can visit these 4 museums with your GPS unit as caches are hidden at each one. The geocache coordinates are included in the passport. Geocaching is presently the fastest growing sport in the world.
Passports are FREE and available at all four (4) museums & some tourist information booths in the area. Information is also available by phoning or visiting any one of the four museums.
We hope you'll enjoy our Museum Passport Adventure however you choose to visit our four museums between now and September 30th.
