City of Burnaby - Burnaby Art Gallery
City of Burnaby - Burnaby Village Museum
Costumed Interpreters assist on site when the Museum is open to the general public, usually from May-September and November through to early January. Volunteers dress in costume and are usually stationed in homes and businesses in the Village. They make visitors feel welcome and engage them in learning through informal conversations. These volunteers may also lead interpretive activities for the general public.
Working under the direction of the Costume Coordinator, Sewing Circle Volunteers use a sewing machine and a Serger to perform tasks related to the museum’s costuming department. This may include but is not limited to hand sewing, ironing, needle work, mending and other tasks as required.
