We would like to invite you to visit the Enderby & District Museum & Archives at 901 George Street (beneath Enderby City Hall). Our hours are 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm, Tuesday through Saturday, and our curator and volunteers would love to give you a tour of the museum or assist you with your research.
We have a variety of exhibits for you to enjoy, including a model of Enderby in 1905 that was created by a local high school student, and exhibits on Kodak cameras, winter sports, and the 1950s, to name a few. Exhibits are rotated, with one to two new exhibitions being put on display each year.
We are proud of our extensive archives, with over 7,500 historic photographs, original newspapers dating back to 1904, 116 fonds, a complete set of OHS Reports, and files on many of the families and businesses in the area.
Volunteering at the museum is a great way to contribute to preserving our community’s history for future generations. You can step out to do something different, make new friends, and best, set your own “work” schedule with flexible hours. You can take off to travel, visit friends, or even enjoy an extended vacation whenever you want!
One of our favourite things about volunteering at the museum is the opportunity to meet so many interesting people. Besides locals and visitors from across Canada, in recent months we’ve also had visitors from the United States, Australia, New Zealand, and as far away as Russia!
Afraid you might get bored while volunteering, or not find a project that interests you?
