Program Description

This interactive program encourages students to think about how they move through their communities, and about how the past influences the present and future of city planning. Students will learn about the factors that influenced the founding, building, and settling of New Westminster while taking a tour of the museum’s galleries. Students will put this knowledge into practice by creating a LEGO city and consider how transportation factors into city planning.

Programs running before November 17, 2018 will include a special tour of our feature LEGO exhibition, People Gotta Move.
