CELEBRATE FATHERS DAY AT THE PORT MOODY STATION MUSEUM

The Port Moody Station Museum is once again hosting its Annual Fathers Day Lemonade and Cookie event. This year it coincides with the Grand Opening of the Freight Shed Redevelopment Project which now houses the Museums’ Exhibition Room.

Beginning in the fall of 2006, great care was taken to insure the authenticity of the renovations. “We searched long and hard for reclaimed wood for the floors and display cases,” explains Manager/Curator Jim Millar. “This was an arduous task but necessary to keep with the ambience and look of our museum.”

An old tool display, a photographic display of Port Moody Then and Now and more are here to enjoy.

The Port Moody Station Museum is owned and operated by the Port Moody Heritage Society and is part of their effort to promote increased awareness and knowledge of Port Moody’s Heritage and History.

The Large Exhibition Hall

The Large Exhibition Hall

It has a new name and it doesn’t look like this any more! We have been calling it “The Freight Shed” but with the changes made to promote the display of artifacts and allow for lectures and showings we are changing the name to “The Large Exhibition Hall”.

This picture was taken earlier in the year when renovations were under way. I have had a sneak peak or two and it looks wonderful with dark rich wood and honey light wood and new displays and cabinetry. The new setup will be more flexible and there will be more flexibility for creation of changing exhibits. The museum was good before but will be even better!

Join us Fathers’ Day for the Grand Re-Opening of The Large Exhibition Hall on June 17th from 10am – 4pm.
