Join us for an inspiring evening learning about Streetcar #153 and the extraordinary Museum of North Vancouver!

North Vancouver’s Streetcar #153 is being prepared for display in the Museum of North Vancouver which is now under construction in Lower Lonsdale at 115 West Esplanade. For its debut, the streetcar is being restored by the West Coast Railway Association. Don Evans, Chair of that organisation, will join us to introduce the history of North Vancouver’s ‘perfect’ streetcar system and present Streetcar #153’s road to restoration.

Don Evans will be joined by Museum Director Nancy Kirkpatrick who will speak about the innovative new museum and its contemporary exhibits and engaging programs that will inspire this community with powerful stories of North Vancouver.

As well, curator Karen Dearlove will present intriguing streetcar related items from our collection and as well as some unique artifacts that will be featured in the new Museum. Discover Indigenous masks and baskets, ship makers’ patterns and other objects that hold the key to our North Van stories.

This event is free but registration is required.
