Our Adopt an Artifact
program ensures your recognition as someone who values and supports our community. Your name will appear on a distinctive artifact label when the artifact is on display and in the permanent artifact record. You will receive a certificate with an image, artifact information, and story to display in your home or office. Give our past a future by adopting at one of the three levels: $5,000, $2,500, and $1,000. For more information and a list of available artifacts, please contact Debbie Trueman at 250.753.1821 or debbie@nanaimomuseum.ca.
