After Hours at The Museum


Our 2019 After Hours at the Museum this summer season was a success, with a notable increase in attendance. And for good reason, as we had an outstanding roster of speakers, as per the list below. Our list for 2020 is in the works!

This summer we had a super line-up of topics and speakers, covering everything from folk-music to bats. Other topics covered included The Royal Muskoka Hotel, Attawapiskat, Prime Ministers  and more. Attendees were also able to browse the museum while enjoy complimentary lemonade/tea and homemade cookies.
