New Outdoor Interpretive Signage

New Outdoor Interpretive Signage

In Rossland’s mining heyday, everyone would have known what all the equipment is on the Rossland Museum’s upper level, but today, things need some explanation. To address this, the Rossland Museum & Discovery Centre is excited to announce that we have completed the installation of brand new outdoor signage to interpret, explain and assist in way-finding through the museum’s outdoor exhibition area.

Mirrors of Development - Rossland and Kimberley

Mirrors of Development - Rossland and Kimberley

Mirrors of Development, a travelling 2D exhibition, was created by the Columbia Basin Institute of Regional History (CBIRH) is currently on display! The exhibition strives to show a parallel progression between Rossland and Kimberley. Despite being separated by over 260 km, Rossland and Kimberley have surprisingly similar histories. Both towns started as mining camps, have produced world-class athletes, and have successfully transitioned into resort towns as their mining industry era came to a close. The images in the exhibition follow this shared pathway, mirroring each other through their development.
