The Columbia Pacific Heritage Museum announces the exhibit Coming Home: A Tour of Ilwaco, on view April 15 – May 6, 2023. This exhibit celebrates the launch of a digitally-based walking tour created by students from Hilltop Middle School and Ilwaco High School in partnership with the museum. As of April 10th, the digital tour will be available at www.theclio.com or on the Clio app.
The Kola Boathouse, railcar NAHCOTTA, and Aberdeen Packing Co./ Doupè Brothers’ Department Store are among the featured locations. The students wrote their own scripts and learned how to use video and sound equipment. The videos were then compiled with historical images and information from the museum’s archives into a digital walking tour on the Clio Walking Tour app, available on smartphones and online.
An opening reception will be held Saturday, April 15th at the Columbia Pacific Heritage Museum from 1–3 pm, with a program beginning at 1:30 pm. Admission is free thanks to the Port of Ilwaco and our members. For more information please visit our website www.ColumbiaPacificHeritageMuseum.org or call 360-642-3446.
