Recent exhibits at Lynden Pioneer Museum have explored fences, the history of bicycles and the roots of modern Christmas traditions.
Working with a modest budget and without state-of-the-art facilities, the museum's director and curator, Troy Luginbill, keeps coming up with intriguing topics.
With Luginbill at the throttle, Lynden's is The Little Museum That Could.
Now he's putting the final touches on a new exhibit: "Go! Engines, Motors and Forward Momentum," which looks at the rise of engines to power work, replacing the muscular oomph of people and animals.
