The lively, interactive community museum will be part of a new retail/residential development where it will occupy the 2nd floor podium level while having ground floor access from West Esplanade. The historic Streetcar 153 – the only remaining street railway car from North Vancouver’s 1906-1947 streetcar system – will be an entrance feature.
“The location across from Lonsdale Quay and the new Polygon Gallery could not be better,” said Victor Elderton, Chair of the North Vancouver Museum and Archives Commission. “With 16,000 sq. ft. of space, there will be room to tell North Vancouver’s extraordinary story in new and engaging ways.”
Visitors will be able to participate in community events, activities and educational programs, and enjoy regularly changing exhibits.
