“In keeping with the need to curb the spread of the Coronvirus, the B.C. Vintage Truck Museum located in Cloverdale will be closed to the public until further notice,” wrote Dean.

“We invite you to visit our website at bcvintagetruckmuseum.org and take a virtual tour of our museum,” she added.

Dean said just like visiting the museum, virtual museum-goers can still “view a selection of our restored vehicles” online and can still “learn about the history of trucking in B.C.,” by visiting their website.
