Eminent Historical Characters Pay a Visit to the Museum of Vancouver

This December, the Museum of Vancouver had some special historical guests. An array of characters such as Queen Elizabeth, Billy Bishop, Arthur Erickson, Emily Carr, Galileo, Isaac Newton, Sir Winston Churchill, Amelia Earhart were in the house to give presentations on their lives and converse with parents, administrators and teachers afterwards.

It was all part of the annual "Evening of Eminence" a Multi-Age Cluster Class for some of Vancouver's most gifted students. During the evening, Grade 6 to 7 students dressed as their favorite characters after immersing themselves in study about the eminent person's life and time. Students participating in the event came from General Gordon, Queen Mary and Tecumseh Elementary.

It was a fun day of history and humor. Have a look at some of the top costumes below:
