The Enderby and District Museum is hosting an open house March 31 for the official grand opening of The Open Road, a new exhibit of photographs of local people and their cars.

On display is more than 100 photographs, from the museum’s collection, of local people with their cars or trucks, and a story to go with many of them, said curator Joan Cowan.

“Local car experts will share some of their old tools and car accessories. Oldtimers will talk about the cars and the garages in our district. A documentary film about the automobile, with some great clips from the silent movies and a few talkies, will be shown,” she said, adding all sorts of refreshments will be served.

Visitors can also take a look at various books that have been donated to the museum, and can help staff try to identify some of the vehicles on exhibit and in the albums, said Cowan.

The open house begins at 1 p.m. and runs to 4 p.m. The museum is located on Highway 97A in the city hall complex. Everyone is welcome.
