Are you interested in learning more about the photos in our collection?
'Remember This?' is a weekly series of historic photographs submitted by the Collingwood Museum to CollingwoodToday.ca. These photographs were originally collected and documented by the Huron Institute in an historical catalogue entitled Huron Institute Paper and Records: Volume III.
Another great summer of children's programs has come to a close! Throughout July and August, we offered 30 unique programs, twice daily, to a total of 427 registrants. We had participants join us from Singapore, South Korea, Germany, Dubai, the USA and all across Ontario. Of course, we also saw both new and familiar faces from the Collingwood region.
We've created a short (3 minute) survey to get valuable feedback on our children's programs. If you enrolled a child in any of our 2019 programs, we want to hear from you!Click hereto complete the survey.
Thanks to everyone who has already given feedback!
We can hardlybe-leaf that autumn is right around the corner.
Children are invited to join us on October 4 for our first PA Day program of the school year. Learn about the harvest, changing colours, and the GNE as we explore all that fall has to offer.
Stop by the Museum booth at the GNE to chat with Museum staff, check out Gift Shop items, and bid in the silent auction. We hope to see you there!
Thank you George Czerny for snapping this photo of Jackie and Elise at last year's GNE.
Come see our latest Community Collectors exhibit!
This time we are featuring select items from Jasmine MacLellan's Blue Mountain Pottery (BMP) collection. To complement this exhibit, we're also displaying some BMP pieces from the Museum's collection.
The Perils and Pitfalls of the Steamer Ploughboy: A Story of its Construction to Destruction by John C. Carter.
This intriguing history of the merchant ship includes the July 1859 excursion of thirty members of the government of Canada West. The guests on the Ploughboy left Collingwood, having arrived by rail on July 3, 1859. The steamer headed to Owen Sound and then up the peninsula for Manitoulin Island.
History at its best is available for $9.00 plus HST in the Museum's Gift Shop. Members receive a 20% discount.
