With its reopening on October 7th, the Columbia Pacific Heritage Museum (Ilwaco, WA) will open a new show in its Special Exhibition Gallery titled Black & White and Read All Over: Local Photographs and the Stories They Tell. Since the Museum closed in March, staff has taken on a robust social media project, posting almost daily, photographs from the collection with well researched tidbits of local history attached to each photograph. These postings on our Facebook page have become incredibly popular and have been a way of opening up the museum’s collection and the history it holds, even while the doors have remained closed. Black & White and Read All Over will feature the photographs and stories that were “liked” the most of the closure postings. This exhibit will be on display from October 7, 2020 until March 6, 2021. The Columbia Pacific Heritage Museum will be open Wednesday through Saturday each week from 10am to 4pm.


  • Starting Wednesday, October 7th, 2020, repeats every day until Saturday, March 06, 2021 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
