Dear Friends,

Due to recommendations by provincial and federal government health officials for COVID-19 response, and in order to protect the public, volunteers and staff, the Sooke Region Museum & Visitor Centre will be closed to the public until further notice.

We will continue to answer emails and voice mails and, where possible, be available during our normal working hours to answer the phone. Public events and programs scheduled up to the end of April will be cancelled at this time, and we will review our longer term activities based on the advice of the public health professionals.

In the meantime, we will be developing special social media and online exhibits and posts to keep sharing the rich human and natural heritage of the region. We also hope to step up our online efforts to provide information to potential future visitors.  We will also provide materials on our outdoor bulletin board for those that do drop by the facility.

As for the Night Market, we will continue to plan for it, but we will adjust accordingly and let you know if we need to make any changes to the schedule.

Keep an eye on our website, Facebook,  Twitter and Instagram accounts for updates and to see some of the interesting materials we plan to share!

These are unusual times and we appreciate your understanding as we take these steps to protect our visitors, staff and volunteers.
