This members-exclusive event is an excellent way to get your holiday shopping done and take advantage of some great once-a-year deals! The gift shop area will be open for shopping, the museum gallery will have complimentary snacks and refreshments, and the feature gallery area will be decked out in holiday cheer (including a tree)!

Everything* in the Gift Shop will be 25% off and flash sales offering further reductions will be announced on the day. Our clearance table will also be marked down to 60%. Stay tuned to our Instagram and Facebook pages for information on more discounts to come!

Members and a plus-one are invited to join us, but if you have more friends who are keen on attending, they are welcome to accompany you after signing up for membership upon arrival! Please register below with the number of people in your group, to give us an idea of how many refreshments we need.

We will have a box out to collect toys, games & books for The Great Nanaimo Toy Drive if you’d like to bring something to donate. This is also the last day to view stem ’al̓u ’u’ ni x̌e’x̌e “What is Sacred” our Coast Salish Art feature exhibit curated by Eliot White-Hill, Kwulasultun (Snuneymuxw).
