The Manitoba Agriculture Museum in Austin has been awarded grant money as part of Manitoba 150.
In partnership with the Manitoba government, the Manitoba 150 host committee will be providing $166,000 to seven museums, all of which are designated as Manitoba Star Attractions. Angie Klym, president of the museum, says the board needs to discuss where exactly their grant money will be going.
"We'll need to discuss and prioritize projects which can benefit from these funds, and I think our board and organization will look at applying the grant money toward a long-term project," explains Klym. "Perhaps an exhibit, as a lasting legacy to commemorate Manitoba 150, or we may also look at some of our school and youth programming."
She adds if you're looking to come out and visit the museum, you'll have to stay mindful of all COVID-19 health and safety guidelines. Any guests must also provide proof of double vaccination to view any exhibits.
"We are certainly very excited to be forward planning into 2022," Klym says when asked about events in the near future. "We're looking toward having events starting in spring, and we're especially excited for our winter wonderland later down the line."
