We’re Renovating!

Museum Closure Scheduled June 10 – July 20

Exciting plans are in the works. We can’t wait to share our new look with you. The Museum galleries will be closed from June 10 until July 20 to complete this undertaking. The archives reference room will be closed from June 4 to July 20.

This project will begin a process of transforming all three Museum upper galleries into flexible and fully accessible spaces. With these renovations, the Museum will improve its ability to include multi-media content in our exhibitions and programming, support the purchase of five custom Community Curator exhibit cases and create a modern Wi-Fi network to help power our education programs. The focus is on energy efficiency, accessibility and laying the groundwork for future projects.

The permanent gallery currently houses Cradled in the Valley. Developed in 2006, this exhibit has been telling the story of Dundas to visitors from all over the world for the last decade. The final day to see this exhibit will be June 9.
