After 60 years, the Museum of History and Industry will close the doors of its Montlake location on Thursday and begin preparations to reopen at its new South Lake Union home in December. Before saying goodbye to the neighborhood for good, the museum will host a going-away block party this Wednesday night.

Farewell Montlake: A Festive Evening features live music from Bushwick Book Club, a cash bar, Dante’s Inferno Dogs and Street Treats food trucks, and behind-the-scenes access to the museum. The museum will offer free admission both Wednesday and Thursday (open 10am–8). It’s the last chance to check out the Garden of Iconic Objects, the original 1922 Ford Model T UPS package car, the civic artifacts in the "Essential Seattle: A City Revealed" exhibit, and the other treasures in MOHAI’s collection before the museum goes off the map until the end of the year.

Farewell Montlake: A Festive Evening
June 6 at 5, Museum of History and Industry, free.
