The Children’s Museum and Discovery Centre at R.J. Haney Heritage Village in Salmon Arm is ready to bring playful, hands-on discovery when it opens at the end of the month.

The museum, located in the Broadview School House in the heart of the historic village, is set to open July 30.

It's themed around natural elements at the heritage village, the water of the Shuswap, and the region's early settlers.

The hands-on exhibits are designed for children and their grown-ups to learn and play together.

The museum is giving every child who visits a T-shirt designed by local artist Justin Maas. This is in partnership with Salmon Arm Savings Credit Union, Total Office, and Spectrum Signworks.

The village is located on the east side of Salmon Arm at 751 Highway 97 B. It is the Shuswap's largest heritage destination.

The construction of the Children’s Museum and Discovery Centre was made possible by the donations of individuals and local businesses and funding from both the provincial and federal governments.
