Museum hires curator

The Brandon General Museum and Archives has hired a curator.

Mark Veneziano is from Ontario and will commence his duties on Nov. 15.

In 2007, the Brandon General Museum and Archive Inc. was formed as a committee by the City of Brandon in 2007.

In 2009, the museum incorporated into a non-profit organization in order to act as a charity and issue tax receipts for donations.

Today it is governed by a board, made up of three city councillors and nine community members.

The BGMA, when fully established will be a community museum supported entirely by memberships, grants, donations, and fundraisers.

Its mission is to collect, conserve, study, exhibit and interpret historic and heritage materials relating to the City of Brandon and its place within the history of Southwestern Manitoba.

The Brandon General Museum and Archives is located on the ground floor of the old Manitoba

Telephone building at 19 Ninth St. Hours are Tuesday to Saturday, 1 p.m.-4 p.m. Admission is free.

Currently on display is "Time Pieces: Images of Brandon."
