Lord Strathcona House

The newly constructed museum in Rigolet will still go into operation without a museum planner.

Jack Shiwak is the Acting Chairperson for the Rigolet Heritage Society.

He says the museum is called the Lord Strathcona House.

The Heritage Society volunteers will be putting everything together themselves.

This includes the showcases, artifacts, archived material and stories.

Shiwak says the building will house three sections:

1. Digital Storytelling
2. An old-fashion kitchen; and
3. A section containing World War II and Hudson’s Bay items

Shiwak adds that a cruise ship is expected on June 22 and they hope to be open for business before then.
