North Shore Heritage Weekend, September 16 and 17

Stop by the museum this September for Heritage Weekend on September 16 and 17!

On Saturday the 16th we will host an antique car show with a 1950s theme. There will also be a number of displays by community groups highlighting West Vancouver's built, natural and cultural heritage. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about West Vancouver and see some vehicles that don't often appear on the roads anymore!

A home tour is scheduled for Sunday, September 17. The West Vancouver portion of the tour will highlight the modernist period, with a focus on the Copper Cliff neighbourhood above Horseshoe Bay. Tickets for this event are 15 dollars and will be available at the Museum after Labour Day. Our last home tour was a huge success - don't miss this opportunity for a first-hand look at modernist architecture!

And while you're checking out the events, be sure to stop by the museum gallery to have a look at our current exhibit, Living on the Edge: West Vancouver Modernist Homes 1940-1970. This exhibit, which was origianlly due to close on September 3rd, has been extended due to its popularity. Learn more about the exhibit here.
