WASHOUGAL – Two Rivers Heritage Museum, 1 Durgan St., Washougal, will be open 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays starting April 3.
The reception area is now home to the “Gorge” display, a model representing 90 miles of the Columbia River Gorge with landmarks that light up. The “School Days” exhibit was taken apart with some artifacts sent back to storage while some were moved to other displays.
The Carriage House has new displays such as “All Boxed Up,” featuring vintage, folding wooden grocery boxes branded with names of local stores, and “From Here to There,” a collection of surveying and mineral artifacts.
The Gathering Place at Washuxwal longhouse pavilion on the museum’s southern side is nearly complete. It’s based on the traditional cedar plank houses used by Native American tribes who lived in what is now east Clark County in the early 19th century.
Admission is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors, $2 for students and free for children 5 and younger. Call 360-835-5449 to schedule group tours. To learn more about the museum, visit www.2rhm.com.
