Vintage Guns at the Peace River Museum

The Peace River Museum will be hosting local collector, Vern MacRoberts on Saturday, March 23rd from 2 to 4:30 pm. He will be bringing his fine collection of vintage firearms and Hudson's Bay artifacts. They will be available for viewing and to chat with Vern during that time. *EDIT: He will be speaking specifically to his collection at 3 pm*
His knowledge about the fur trade, trapping and antique firearms is extensive.

This is also the last day for viewing of our current exhibit: From Peace River to Paris: Fashionable Furs of our Century which focuses on historic and contemporary trapping as well as the fur industry over time.

Our next exhibit will launch in early April and will be curated by the Peace of Art Club. It is entitled: Peace River Art Club, 25 Years. Please keep an eye on our blog for more information!
