Earthquakes on tap for museum morning

Monthly information program at Penticton Museum

Earthquakes are on the agenda for the next Saturday Morning at the Museum Dec. 16.

The entire family is invited to come down to the museum from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. for a hands-on opportunity to learn about earthquakes and the fault line in the Okanagan.

Limited to just 25 people, participants will have an opportunity to build a model of an earthquake-proof building and then test their work on the earthquake table.

The regular sessions are for five to eight year olds with parental supervision. Older and younger siblings are welcome as well.

Suggested donation is $1.

For more information contact the museum at 250-490-2454 or email chandra.wong@penticton.ca

Saturday Mornings at the Museum take place the third Saturday of every month.
