The museum changes its exhibit frequently, but always focuses on the region and its place in the “bigger picture.” Recent exhibit included one on women’s undergarments; another is of Native American basketry. It did one on the history of the Interstate 5 bridge that connects Vancouver to Portland. The new executive director has brought a welcome, dynamic perspective.
