Surrey Remembers at the Surrey Museum and Surrey Archives
Bring your family to take part in the annual Remembrance Day ceremony at the Cloverdale Cenotaph next door to the Surrey Museum and the Surrey Archives. This event is organized by the Royal Canadian Legion Cloverdale Branch #6. For information on the ceremony, call 604-574-5300.
After the ceremony, come in to the Museum to warm up and enjoy activities:

- Set the kids loose in the fully interactive Kids Gallery to explore sustainability from a child's point of view
- View WWII documentary videos in the Museum’s theatre
