In honor of Farmer’s Day, the Nampa and District Museum is hosting its first ever Pop-Up Museum!

We are looking for objects and photographs related to the history of sports and sports teams to display in a special exhibit from Farmer’s Day until August 7th, 2018.

What’s a POP-UP MUSEUM all about? It’s a temporary exhibit created on the spot by people who bring objects that are put on display for a short period of time. The proprietor makes a short-term loan to the museum and his item is returned once the loan period is over. To learn more about this event, please visit www.nampamuseum.ca, call 780-322-2777 or email us at nampamuseum@iwantwireless.ca.


Tour the Museum for FREE!


On Farmer’s Day and on Canada Day, admission fees will be waved. Take a guided tour of your local museum for free! 



Seniors' Spring Luncheon and Tea - April 18, 2018

Nampa/Marie-Reine/Reno FCSS, Saint-Isidore FCSS and the Nampa and District Museum were proud to welcome 37 guests to a beautiful tea and luncheon held in the first floor gallery near the boardwalk. After a short tour offered by Gisèle, the museum's curator, ladies and gentlemen sat down to a tasty meal. The menu included classic tea fair such as scones, shortbread cookies and cucumber sandwiches, but also features some delightful goodies like poppy seed loaf, saskatoon pies and mini asparagus quiches. Spring hadn't made its way to Nampa yet, but participants left with a full belly and a spring in their step. The event was catered by Nampa's Farmer's Restaurant and our curator. 

A little history on Seniors' tea in Nampa. In the past, the local FCSS held periodically held teas for the local seniors. Sue Bowling, coordinator for the FCSS for many years would treat the older generation a few times a year. At the Museum, we are happy to continue this beautiful tradition. Dishes, cups and platters used for our spring tea are the same as those used by Sue Bowling and her staff. 

Your group would like to join us for tea? Contact the museum to inquire about holding one for a group. The activity can be held in either French or English. 

Here are a few pictures from the event!
