The Chemainus Valley Museum is set to open its doors again after a hiatus due to COVID-19.
Opening will be on Canada Day Wednesday, July 1 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Following that, the museum will be open Fridays through Sundays from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. during the summer as things ease back into the “new normal”.
“To keep visitors safe, the museum is reopening the original doors as the entrance and using the new doors in the addition as the exit, along with a re-designed inside and new stories for a safe self-guided tour,” explained Chemainus Valley Historical Society and Museum board member and past president Amy Brophy.
The grand reopening of the expanded museum was held last August, with several dignitaries on hand. Since then up to the temporary closure due to the pandemic, the museum regularly drew rave reviews from visitors.
Hours in the fall and going forward will be reviewed later in the summer.
