Dear BCMA community,

In partnership with *Sea to Sky Immersive*, we are so excited to launch
"Hands Up! The Billy Miner Experience" this coming weekend. From the team
that brought you the Christmas Carol immersive at Roedde House last
December, a gripping audio-visual experience has been custom created for
our museum. Patrons will have the chance to experience the famous
Silverdale train robbery of 1904 - Western Canada's first ever train heist
- and the ensuing pursuit, capture, and trial of Bill Miner and his gang of

This 45 minute long family-friendly experience begins on an old CP
caboose and then, journeys through different rooms of our 110 year old
heritage home. Opening this Friday, Sept 10th - the 117th anniversary of
the robbery - and running on weekends until Sept. 26th, this unique and
exciting production is not to be missed!
