Museum Closing Temporarily
After having an unexpected delay, we are excited to announce that the Museum remodel is happening. The City of Vancouver, who owns the building, is removing the mid-century era floor tile on the main and lower floors. Upstairs, the original wood flooring will be refinished. Downstairs, vinyl tile will go in. After the floors are replaced upstairs, the lobby and the NW and SW galleries will be painted. This work will take roughly two months. We’ll close on October 1 at end of day. Visit soon to see Woven History one last time. When we re-open it will be replaced with All Aboard! Clark County Rides the Rails. Founding Mothers: Portraits of Progress will also close on October 1.
While we are closed, we’ll be working on special projects like revamping our website, planning for our 100th Anniversary celebration, and tackling a backlog of collections processing. Haunted Walking Tours will continue as scheduled, new this year, we will be starting inside Slocum House. Patrons will have limited and conditional access to the Research Library upon request. There will be no First Thursday program October – January. Our annual member meeting will be on November 17 at a location to be determined.
A re-opening date will be announced in November.
