Journey to Belonging
Billy Mink in the Immigration Hall at Pier 21
In partnership with: Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21
In this next "Maritime Mink" Adventure, Captain Nemo sends Billy Mink to the Canadian Immigration Hall, inside Halifax's Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21. Fresh from discovering the roots of his family tree, Billy discovers the big picture of Canada's immigration story - one that is still unfolding today. He explores the interactive museum, and even finds that some of his Kidoons friends have 'immigrated' into his story! While building a replica of his great-grandpa's green trunk, he finds a branch from the Secret Wreath, and gets sucked into his next episode!
Special note: This MOM (Multimedia Outreach Module) was the 2nd episode in a 2-part series developed in partnership with The Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21. It's part of a larger Nova Scotia story arc that features episodes created with the Nova Scotia Museum of Industry, the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, and the Atlantic Canada Aviation Museum.

When I grow up I want to be: A Heritage Interpreter
It takes a lot of people to operate a history museum. Heritage Interpreters bring history to life and to help make it interesting and meaningful to their visitors. They deliver interpretive programs, tell stories, offer demonstrations, workshops and tours, sometimes even dressing in period costumes.
