Museums must spark a sense of curiosity in residents of their communities, just as his parents instilled it in him, retiring executive-director of the Kelowna Museums told about 130 people at his official retirement event Wednesday evening.

Wayne Wilson was one of a lineup of speakers to refer to his Kelowna Museum career over the past 34 years at the event, including CHBC weatherman Mike Roberts, Kelowna Mayor Walt Gray and former executive-director Ursula Surtees.

He announced that in the fall he will take on a new position as part-time executive-director for the Central Okanagan Land Trust.
