MONOVA: Museum of North Vancouver is opening in 2021

We are hard at work developing North Vancouver’s newest public museum and we’re getting very close to opening the doors to you.

Later in 2021, we invite you to join us in the Shipyards District in a brand new 16,000 sq. ft. facility where we plan to ignite curious minds through powerful stories of North Vancouver.

BRINGING
STORIES
TO
LIFE

Our goal is to raise $1.5 million to enhance the way you experience North Vancouver’s new Museum.

Funding will be used to create:

  • a fully interactive exhibit experience
  • outfit the museum’s spaces
  • create enhanced programming

Read about how our community will benefit in the Case for Support.

We are 98% of the way to achieving our Comprehensive Campaign fundraising goal!

Help us to transform the way we experience North Vancouver’s stories.

OUR STORIES: IRANIAN COMMUNITY ON THE NORTH SHORE

During the month of August 2021, we want to hear from members of the Iranian community on the North Shore. We’re looking for stories and project ideas on how we can best represent the Iranian community at the new Museum of North Vancouver.

Have a story or idea you’d like to share? We’d love to hear from you! Reach out to us at 604-990-3700 (ext. 8007) and info@monova.ca and share your thoughts.

Your ideas and stories will help inform future programming and exhibits at MONOVA.

Strategic Plan

Becoming a community hub means asking a wide range of people what they want and need from their Museum and Archives. It also means having a deep knowledge of cultural spaces and offerings already available in our community, and knowing how we can magnify these with our own activities.

Representing years of visioning, self-scrutiny and consultation with stakeholders and our wider community, MONOVA’s 2020-2023 Strategic Plan is now available. Read more about the making of the strategic plan.
