In celebration of the 100 year anniversary of the Rural Municipality of Lac du Bonnet’s formation of council, the Lac du Bonnet & District Historical Society created three travelling exhibits.
The exhibits were initially shown during the museum’s open house in 2017 until the museum seasonal closing and then went on to be featured at the Lac du Bonnet RM Office for the month of September.
The exhibits are:
Lac du Bonnet Sturgeon (Acipenser Fulvescens)
Lac du Bonnet Brick Works 1899 – 1920
When Doctors Made House Calls
Also available is a suitcase exhibit done by Kaitlyn Mitchell (summer student 2017) called “Children’s Cherished Memories.” To read a report on Kaitlyn’s experience making the case, please click: Travelling Suitcase Exhibit Report
The Lac du Bonnet District Museum is making the exhibits available on loan to the Lac du Bonnet community businesses, schools, or organizations to promote local history.
