The Princeton museum has received a much needed complete renovation, and will celebrate its Grand Re-Opening on Friday July 1, 2011 in conjunction with Canada Day celebrations including singing, birthday cake, games, live stage performances and much more.  The entire community is invited to join in the re-opening celebration and ribbon cutting ceremony at 11 am at 167 Vermilion Avenue, Princeton BC.

Following three years of discussions and planning, the Princeton Museum has had a complete overhaul.  The building that previously housed the museum and library is now dedicated entirely to the museum.  With a brand new look and double the square footage, this small town museum is now a small world class facility that is not to be missed. Local contracting firm “Fred and Company” have done a high quality renovation that has brought this vintage building into the 21 Century with the use of high quality materials and an open concept architectural plan.

The museum society enlisted the help of design team Richard Simpson and Robin Lowe, who have a combined 30 years experience in film and television set design, and in two short months, created a space that is nothing short of spectacular.  With an emphasis on honoring Princeton’s past, while utilizing modern materials and design concepts, this space is barely recognizable and is sure to put Princeton on the map as a community with an interactive, educational and exciting facility for locals and visitors.

The Grand Re-Opening Celebration will offer something for the entire family.  There will be entertainment, free admission to the museum and complementary light snacks and beverages.

The media and the residential and business community are urged to witness this exciting re-opening celebration.  For more information about the celebration call, or email: princetonmuseum@gmail.com.
