Winter comes early: Edmonds Historical Museum’s new exhibit, “Winters of Yesteryear,” opened this week and runs through Jan. 27.

“Winters of Yesteryear” features vintage skis, sleds, ice skates and historic photographs from the museum’s collection. From the Big Snow of 1916 to today, explore how locals have experienced the winter season — how they’ve talked about it, prepared for it, dressed for it, played and competed in it and now remember it.

Edmonds Historical Museum, 118 Fifth Ave. N., is open 1 to 4 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays. It will be open 5 to 8 p.m. during Third Thursday Art Walks in November and December.

The suggested donation is $5 per adult and $2 per child. For more information, go to
