Special Exhibit – War time in Sunnyvale
The year 2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War, and the new exhibit at the museum takes us back to wartime in Sunnyvale. In 1942, Washington Park became training grounds for recruits, and Sunnyvale was inundated with soldiers who added a new element to the town and took local girls to dances at the Civic Center.
Along with many photographs, the exhibit features military paraphernalia from both WWI and WWII, including uniforms, mess kits, canteens, gas masks, a foot locker and much more, as well as maps and newspaper pages from those periods. The exhibit will open February 23rd, 2020 and will be on display through the summer.
April 25th and 26th – Spring Teas
Our next Victorian Teas will be the last weekend in April. Reservations are currently open to members only through the month of March. Reservations can be made by non-members after April 1st, however they can add their request to the waiting list now. All seats will be filled in order of received by both members and non members.
