Summer student Alexa Davidson and museum Curator Kathy Paulos are getting ready for the Museum Open House on Aug. 22. This year’s highlight will be the history of the BX Express.

Museum offers a walk through the past

The Ashcroft Museum is offering walks around town and walks through the museum for its Open House on Aug. 22.

Ashcroft Museum will host its third annual Open House on Friday, Aug. 22 from 9 to 11:30 am.

This year’s walk will start at 9 am at the Museum and go south down Brink St., heading up to Railway Ave. for a pause at the old BX building, before returning back to the museum. Museum curator Kathy Paulos will lead the tour and share some history of the houses along the way and the people who lived in them.

For those of you who prefer to stay indoors Alexa Davidson will take you on a tour of the museum and involve you in an activity called Name That Artifact.

Following the tours, settle down for an enlightening presentation on the history of the BC Express. Coffee, tea and goodies will be served!
