Show and Share

Like show and tell, but better.

What is the one thing all objects in a museum have in common? That they are significant - to someone. Maybe not to historians or archaeologists, but to someone.

Show and Share celebrates what is special to you. The display of 24 square foot cubes is curated by the community. Items are lent by citizens with a brief description.

Current Exhibit

The next Show and Share case will be themed to our upcoming feature exhibit, Being Punjabi: Unfolding the Surrey Story. Are you Punjabi? Have you visited The Punjab? Do you have a favourite treasure that is Punjabi? Share your story with us! To lend your object for display, email

The Punjab

The Punjab is a geopolitical, cultural and historical region in South Asia, specifically in the northern part of the Indian subcontinent, made up of eastern Pakistan and northern India.
