Working in the present while preserving the past for now and the future

Community Outreach


Community Outreach increases awareness & understanding of the Lac du Bonnet & District Historical Society’s mission by creating educational programs & displays for Lac du Bonnet and the surrounding community. We are dedicated to partnership with communities, schools, community organizations, and other museums through outreach to continue “working in the present while preserving the past for now and the future.”




Lac du Bonnet District Museum “Travelling Exhibits”

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.
