Students from Uplands Elementary School got a private tour and lesson on the Penticton Museum and Archives’ dioramas on Friday, Dec. 4.
The kids also brought the dioramas they had put together themselves.
The Museum and Archives’ curator, Dennis Oomen, presented the kids with a lesson on the museum’s dioramas and what the difference is between a diorama, which is usually a display in miniature, and a recreation.
Afterwards, the kids went on a hunt through the museum before going to look back at their own dioramas.
Currently on display at the Penticton Museum is the Bats: Out of the Darkness exhibit, which showcases the bats of the Okanagan and highlights some of the challenges they face.
In 2021, the Museum will be hosting the Ace Academy- Flight Experience, an interactive flying exhibit from the Canadian Aviation and Space Museum in Ottawa.
