It’s official: a new community museum for North Vancouver is coming to Lower Lonsdale.
In December 2016, the City of North Vancouver approved the construction of a 16,000 square-foot community museum within the new “Promenade at the Quay” retail/residential development in the 100 block of West Esplanade.
“The museum will showcase North Vancouver’s vibrant community history in a custom-built, new facility where residents and visitors can connect with the many stories that inform our present and future,” said Darrell Mussatto, Mayor of the City of North Vancouver.
The museum, made possible through funding from the City of North Vancouver and the Government of Canada, is slated to open in 2019.
Community donations will be sought from individuals, businesses, foundations, and the Friends of the North Vancouver Museum and Archives Society to enhance the museum’s exhibits.
