February 18 is Family Day in BC!
Help us kick off BC Heritage Week with a family-friendly day of crafts, activities and performances. The folks from the Vancouver Aquarium outreach team will be at the museum from 11-4. We’ll also be making Sailor’s Valentines using sea shells to make a traditional Valentine’s Day craft. And Vancouver Puppet Theatre will be at the museum to present their marionette show, Baba Yaga and The Black Flower, with performances at 1:30 and 3:30.
Puppet show, you say? Yes! Handmade marionettes are waiting to tell you the story of Baba Yaga. This ancient Russian forest entity is cosmically cranky and lives in a chicken legged-house. There’s only one thing that can stop her and it isn’t love.
