The Penticton Museum and Archives will reveal the untold stories of some of the building’s most unique artifacts on Feb. 1.

In the next edition of the museum’s Brown Bag Lecture Series, Chandra Wong will present Stories Behind the Artifacts in front of Penticonites looking to spice up their lunch hour.

“A pair of shoes, some bricks and a black photo album seem to have little in common at first glance, yet they each have common elements to their unique narratives,” the museum said in a release about the next Brown Bag lecture.

Wong will tell the stories of some of the objects from the museum’s collection from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. on Feb. 1.

Located inside the museum’s auditorium on 785 Main Street, the Brown Bag Lecture Series invites presenters to discuss topics of their choice.

Wong’s presentation on Feb. 1 will be the third Brown Bag Lecture of 2022.

Earlier this month, Penticton’s history with business and travel was discussed on two different occasions.

Admission to the live talks is by donation.
