Museum expands downtown Vernon mural tours

Vernon mural tours are back

Vernon's museum is expanding its summer operations.

As the summer weather rolls in, the Greater Vernon Museum and Archives is restarting its popular downtown mural tours. 

“We know that local people are looking for interesting things to do in their own community,” says executive director Steve Fleck. “And these tours are a great way to have fun and learn interesting stories about the people and places that impacted the region.”

The murals detail history and characters that portray culture, scenery, and folklore that made Vernon what it is today. 

Volunteer guides Larry Lundgren and Greg Poirier weave stories depicted in the murals with historical references to businesses, architecture, and other interesting tales. 

This season, the museum is expanding the tours into different themes, each with their own locations and stories.  

The first tour begins this Friday, at 9 am. in front of the museum. A $5 donation is suggested. 

Tours will continue throughout the summer on Tuesdays at 6 p.m. and Fridays at 9 a.m.
