Museum Expansion

A hint at what the new Museum will look like

Coming: Fall 2018

Something new and exciting is coming! Your Museum will be a place where people share their stories and culture, where they play, laugh and explore. It will be a place where people visit often to see and experience new things each time.

"The expanded museum will be a community hub where people can not only tour the museum galleries but also gather with friends, study or relax with indoor/outdoor seating and amenities. It will be a dynamic space reflecting the innovation and creativity that defines the City of Surrey." - Lynn Saffery, Museum Manager

What Is a People Museum?

Imagine a renewed Museum filled with life. In this case, it will be filled with the lives of Surrey. The Museum of Surrey will be your Museum. It will be a place where people can:

  • Create, share and connect with each other.
  • Contribute their own ideas, opinions - even their own objects.
  • Do things. A town square. It’s a hub of activity.
