Program Description & Details

Inside the waiting room of the Port Moody Station Museum you can find many old and beaten up suitcases. Each suitcase is filled with the contents of a person’s life.

The suitcases were created by student’s from Burnaby North Secondary. Their task was to imagine what an immigrant would bring on their journey to Canada.

The suitcases contain, necessities like clothes and shoes, but more importantly there are items of memory - pictures, letters, diaries. Items which provide safety and comfort.

Currently we all are forced into lock down. We self isolate to bring the curve down, together we all help to overcome this pandemic.

We are undertaking a personal journey, cut off from our normal busy lives.

Books provide us with endless places for our mind to travel, books can be companions during our isolation, books allow us to travel back and forward in time.

Join the Port Moody Public Library and Port Moody Station Museum and share your book with us. What book would be your travel companion, or is your rock in theses uncertain days?

Join us on this imaginary journey and please share your book with us all.

Program Description & Details

In a Vancouver Mysteries game your students are the heroes of their own outdoor adventure — they’ll sharpen their deductive reasoning skills while they complete a series of challenges and collect clues to solve a mystery on the streets of downtown Vancouver.

Students are divided into teams of up to 6 players competing for first place in an Amazing Race style game. Points are earned by answering each challenge correctly, completing the game within a time limit, and by being one of the first teams back.

Game kits include a map, game book, worksheet, and any tools required to solve the mystery (examples: magnifying glass, measuring tape). Players use the map to navigate the streets of downtown Vancouver, cracking codes and solving puzzles along the way. Landmarks, sculptures, parks, and historic sites all play their part as the story unfolds.

Games are facilitated by Vancouver Mysteries’ Game Operators who arrive in character as detectives or secret agents to introduce the game and send the teams out on their adventure. At the end of the game, Game Operators meet the teams to calculate their scores and award team certificates.

Choose from any of our three games: Gastown murder mystery Crime in Downtown, downtown spy game Secret Mission and superhero adventure Heroes and Villains.
