The Hudson’s Hope Museum will use the funding to under take a collections management project and integrating a new open-source digital collection management system to replace the outdated paper catalogue system. This project will ensure long-term public access to 3,200 artifacts in the Museum’s collection.
“We are very grateful for the support we have received from the Government of Canada,” said Elinor Morrissey, Manager and Curator, Hudson’s Hope Museum. “This funding will make it possible for the Hudson’s Hope Historical Society to upgrade the museum’s card catalogue to a computer-based database, in the long run making our heritage more accessible and preserving it for future generations.”
The Hudson’s Hope Historical Society, established in 1967, owns and operates the Hudson’s Hope Museum. The Museum, housed in a former Hudson’s Bay store, offers exciting exhibits on the area’s prehistory (dinosaur fossils, bones, and tracks), the fur trade and frontier era (Aboriginal, North West Company and Hudson’s Bay Company), and boom times (construction of Bennett and Peace dams).
