Opening Day 2020 delayed until further notice

To our visitors and faithful supporters,

Unfortunately, due to the continuing Covid-19 pandemic, the 2020 season opening at the museum is being delayed.

While we wait out this pandemic, we want to assure you that the museum is still caring diligently for its collection of artifacts. We are also exploring exciting ways to bring the museum’s stories to you at home! Please keep an eye on our website and social media channels for updates on programming.

In the meantime, we will continue to monitor the provincial and municipal guidelines about the timing of our re-opening. We will keep you informed via this website, email, and through our social media. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to connect with us.

We value your continued support and understanding during this unprecedented time. We look forward to visiting with you at the museum when we open again.

On behalf of the museum board,

Doug Smith, Managing Director/Curator
