The Delta Museum and Archives Society (DMAS) is a registered non-profit society that was established in 1969. DMAS currently operates three facilities located in Ladner, BC: The Delta Museum, at 4858 Delta St., the Delta Archives and Edgar Dunning Reading Room, at 4450 Clarence Taylor Cres. beside Municipal Hall, and a Program and Administrative Annex at 4918 Delta St.
As a non-profit society, DMAS depends on government grants, private donations and fund-raising efforts to provide its services to the community of Delta. The Museum acquires and preserves a substantial collection of artifacts and records specific to Delta and its history. A selection of the collection can be viewed online at www.deltamuseum.ca. Included in the services DMAS offers are educational: school, outreach and public education programs. As well, Museum-based gallery exhibits and outreach exhibits are shown in various locations throughout Delta. The natural history of the Delta and Fraser Estuary is becoming an important component of the Museum’s exhibitions and public events.
The Archives preserves community and municipal records and also has regular photographic exhibits and displays for public view. The Archives provides research and reference services to the public and many items from the substantial photographic collection can be viewed online via the Delta Museum website. More photos are being added online on a regular basis. Researchers make regular use of the Archives’ holdings especially the extensive photographic collection, map and document files and reference library.
Our Vision: We envision a community where people are inspired by Delta’s diverse cultural and natural heritage and work together to build a future full of possibility.
Our Mission: The Delta Museum and Archives Society is a vibrant organization that celebrates cultural and natural heritage, and encourages awareness and education through preservation, research, exhibitions, outreach and collaboration.
