The Kamloops Museum and Archives (KMA) has launched a website that brings the KMA into the modern era while preserving history and providing an accessible-minded and inclusive platform for history and education.
Established in 1937, the KMA is one of the province’s oldest museums. The museum collects, organizes, and interprets notable objects and historic records from the region for the purpose of preservation, research, and exhibition. Having an online presence is an equally important role for a museum.
Developing the website was an actionable item due to funds received from the Bostock and Fallis Family of Monte Creek Heritage Fund.
“We are so thankful to be a recipient of the funds,” said Matt Macintosh, the City’s Museum Curator. “The funds allow our team of curators and educators to continue to reach new audiences and provide a new way to experience the museum and the history of our region.”
The site’s content will continue to evolve, with access to video content and programs, extended features on exhibitions, and new content that wasn't available during previous in-person exhibitions.
