After a three-year absence, an open house and salmon barbecue will return to the Sooke Region Museum and Visitors Centre.

This year’s event on June 25 from noon to 3 p.m. will be organized by Sooke Region Historical Society vice-president Laurie Szadkowski, board member Laurie Wallace, and gift shop manager Beverley Myers.

The event will feature tours of the exhibits, including a visit to Moss Cottage with Aunt Tilly and a chance to explore the visitors’ centre and gift shop.

The upstairs gallery will have a temporary visiting exhibit called Cultures of Head Coverings.

The event is free to attend, with food tickets available for purchase.

Attendees can enjoy a salmon dinner with all the fixings or choose burgers, hot dogs, and strawberry shortcake.

For more information or to volunteer, visit, email, or call 250-642-6351.
