Here at the 
Nanaimo Museum, one of our specialties is events.  Moreover, we have now expanded and improved on the delivery of those events thanks to our more spacious and functional facility in the Vancouver Island Conference Centre.

What really makes Nanaimo Museum events so distinctive is our focus on the heritage and cultural aspects of our community.  From exhibit openings and formal banquets to historical tours and multicutural celebrations, we strive to offer the best educational and entertaining programs, activities, and events here in the Harbour City.

One of the main benefits of our new 16,000 sq.ft. facility is that we have more space and resources, and therefore more options in the kind of events we can host. From a handful to hundreds of people, we can now accommodate a much wider range of events from small birthday parties in the programming area to major gatherings, such as the highly popular Lunar New Year celebration in the main gallery.

Although the Nanaimo Museum organizes many of its own unique events, such as the opening receptions of major traveling exhibits, our Sports Hall of Fame Induction Banquet and special cannon firing ceremonies at the Bastion, it is also here for other community groups and organizations to utilize.  Whether it's for a conference delegate event, a news conference, a scholarly seminar, a corporate meeting, a wedding, or another special social gathering, the museum has the facilities and services available for hire.
