Museums in northern Manitoba got the go-ahead to open as life slowly returns during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Flin Flon Station Museum opened June 8, but is ensuring groups are staying apart as they tour.
The Snow Lake Mining Museum is yet to open, as they are still waiting to hire summer students, but expect to keep their regular hours - albeit with fewer visitors during the season.
Paige Lies is the summer student at the Flin Flon Station Museum and said she’s ready to accept visitors.
“[There was] lots of cleaning up and dusting and making sure that all the proper things are in the right place,” she said.
Lies said few plans are in the works for summer programming with restrictions, but that just means more time working to catalog all the artifacts the museum accepts.
“I'm really into photography. There's lots of really cool cameras,” Lies said.
“They’re really old. Some of them are like the original cameras that were used and there's old projectors and stuff that are really cool to look at.”
The Flin Flon Station Museum is open Monday-Friday from 2 p.m.-6 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday from 1 p.m.-4 p.m.
