The Quesnel and District Museum and Archives hosted a couple days of family fun this weekend (Feb 15-16).

Thanks to a provincial grant, they were able to offer free admission, games and refreshments.

A variety of scavenger hunts were avaialble that helped kids and their parents discover more about the history of Quesnel and the Cariboo.

There was also a dress-up chest for those interested in using their imagination to play characters from the area’s past.
