Located in the front room of the Maple Ridge Museum, our temporary gallery rotates exhibits every six months. The goal of the space is to highlight parts of our collection that do not necessarily fit into the exhibits currently on display. The space is also used to showcase traveling exhibitions from neighboring museums.
Currently on display is Sounds Like History: Local Bands and Musicians of Maple Ridge Past which will be on until March 2020.
This exhibit displays the museum’s collection of musical instruments and local band memorabilia throughout Maple Ridge history. You can learn about local bands as well as the history of music in the town, beginning with saturday night dances at the first community halls, all the way through the explosion of music in the 1960’s through today.
Our next exhibit will be showcasing the Maple Ridge Sports Hall of Fame and the museum’s collection of local sports memorabilia in honor of the B.C. Summer Games, March 2020-August 2020.
