The Museum of Surrey’s $15.7-million expansion is officially open.
Hundreds of people, many of them young families, attended the opening on Saturday. The free event began at 11 a.m. and was scheduled to wrap up at 3 p.m.
The new expansion features an Indigenous Hall, the TD Explore Zone, art work and community spaces, as well as a feature gallery, which currently showcases the “Dinosaurs Unearthed” exhibit.

As well as a ribbon-cutting ceremony, the day included an Indigenous welcome and an afternoon of live entertainment. Bobs and LoLo, Smile Band, Vancity Bhangra and Aché Brasil were to perform, and there were stilt walkers and free face painting.
