What's Happening at the West Vancouver Museum

We've got lots of exciting events happening here at the museum in the next few months. Here are the highlights!

Living on the Edge: West Vancouver Modernist Homes 1940-1970: Our current exhibit explores the development of west coast modernism as a distinct style of architecture in West Vancouver, and explores the relationship between architecture and design. The exhibit has been very well received, and we are pleased to announce that it has been extended to September 17th! For more information on this must-see look at one of Canada's most prominant architectural styles, click here.

Sachi, an experienced tea ceremony practitioner, studied under the master of the Enshuryu school in Japan. Not to be missed! Click here for more information.

Get ready for some Halloween fun at the museum this fall as we offer our haunted Halloween exhibit between October 13th and 31st. Find out where Halloween comes from and get a healthy dose of the pop culture icons and traditions that have made it what it is today. Opening day is Friday the 13th, and the exhibit is suitable for adults and children of all ages - Drop by if you dare!

And speaking of Halloween... we're holding our first ever film night on October 13th, and the theme is Halloween! We'll be serving red wine, so the event is adults only - be prepared to scream! Register using telereg/webreg code 355267. See you there!
