During the renovations, we will:
- create a wheelchair-accessible, family-friendly washroom on the main floor,
- install a platform lift to the second floor,
- renovate the main entrance, and
- improve the outdoor ramp.
We will also revitalize our main-floor exhibit space to make it more open and welcoming—all the better to host the community events and top-notch exhibits that you have come to expect from us.
In 2015, we received $50,000 from the Government of Canada’s Enabling Accessibility Fund and $25,000 from the Sunshine Coast Community Forest’s Legacy Fund . We need to raise another $75,000. There are a variety of ways that you can support this vital museum project:
