August has arrived! Here's what's happening at the Museum. 
We just finished our 5th week of amazing summer programs! It's hard to believe we only have three weeks of programs left. 

Staff is getting excited for next week's theme: Time Warp! The adventure will start on Tuesday with the Roaring 20s, an era of jazz music, the first “talkie” films, and slang that was the "cat’s meow". Next, participants will visit the Groovy 60s to embrace flower power and make tie-dyed shirts. Finally, children will stop in the Tubular 80s to discover a time of big hair, jazzercise, and Pac Man. Visit our programming flyer for more details. 
Our annual Shipyard Social is fast approaching! This event gives Shipyard workers and the community an opportunity to celebrate Collingwood's shipbuilding history. 

This free community event promises to be unforgettable! 
Our Summer Hours:
Monday - Thursday 
9:00 AM - 5:00 PM 
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Statutory Holidays
Wondering what museum staff get up to while the building is closed on Fridays? We're using these days to catch up on some ongoing projects. Here is Jessi, our Collections Management Summer Student, putting the extra space to good use!  
Finishing touches are being made to our new Community Collectors exhibit. Jasmine MacLellan's display of Blue Mountain Pottery shows a variety of pieces from the well-known local business. 

Stay tuned for information about the Collectors Night event!
Speaking of pottery, these lovely mugs are made by Collingwood Artist Kirsty Wilson and are available for purchase in the Museum’s gift shop. The mugs are $40 plus HST (membership discounts do not apply).
