SUNNYSIDE — The local museum, 4th and Grant Avenue, is officially open.

Museum Board president Pat Kezele said four new exhibits have been added to the spring collection. They feature antique bridal gowns and a view of a blacksmith shop in the museum basement.

“We recently reopened the second level display area. It includes a blacksmith shop display,” Kezele added.

The Sunnyside Historical Museum also has exhibits honoring the Sunnyside High School with various yearbooks and trophies on display, included the most successful football year in school history — 1971 — with Pete Marquez, who now teaches history at his alma mater.

The bridal display includes wedding dresses worn by the fashionable women dating back to the late 1880s.

A new addition to the museum’s collections is a display of quinceañera gowns and accessories.

The museum is open Saturday and Sunday from 1-6 p.m. until June 16 when summer hours begin.

From June 19 until Sept. 1, the museum will be open Wednesday through Sunday from 1-6 p.m.
