One week is down, but there are plenty of opportunities remaining as Touchstones Nelson welcomes back Summer Tour Saturdays: Museum of Art and History.

Visitors and locals alike are invited to explore Nelson’s diverse history with a knowledgeable docent in the Permanent Museum Exhibit.

Drop in at 11 a.m. on any Saturday morning this summer for a guided walk through the rich history of the West Kootenays.

Additionally, a unique artifact handling experience will be available during the tours.

In Touchstones Nelson’s Permanent Museum Exhibit, you can find a wide array of information on the city’s past, from First Nations history to mining, dam construction to the development of the arts.

For an hour every Saturday in the summer, docents will be available to give a guided tour or simply answer questions as they come up during your visit.

While at the Museum, guests are invited to check out the summer shows at Touchstones Nelson; Abandoning Paradise: The Northern Gateway Project with Glenn Clark and Peter Corbett, and City in Flames: A Journey Through Nelson’s Fire History.
