Behind the Scenes by Mia Skelling …

This week we spent a lot of time finishing a bunch of little projects.


We continued painting the front door and it’s nearly done. All that’s left is a second coat on the outside. I believe it will look very welcoming to the public once it’s finished.

What do you think of the chosen colour?

We also did a few mini “scavenger hunts” to try and find items listed on the cards so we can take pictures of them and document them in Past Perfect. This will aide anyone who is attempting to find an artifact in future with their search.


We have also begun organizing and cleaning the cupboards downstairs. Along with that, we have been making a list of all accessioned items and keeping tabs on where to find them after we come across their cards.


Also, we have begun our “I ♥ Mattawa” masks fundraiser for the museum. We are selling them for 10$ each and they come in red, black, white and blue. If you are interested, please contact us!

Thank you for your support and stay tuned for next week to hear more from Alex on what she’s been up to!
