After Hours at The Museum


A successful summer of ‘Museum After Hours’

The 2018 Museum After Hours is now over for another year. This summer saw a great variety of topics and speakers, covering everything from butter tarts and all you wanted to know about mushrooms, to what is happening to Muskoka’s loons and a presentation about the wonderful glass collection at the museum, and more. Attendees were also able to browse the museum while enjoy complimentary lemonade/tea and homemade cookies.

The Museum After Hours program coordinator has already been working at preparing for next season — stay tuned!
