June has arrived! Here's what's happening at the Museum. 
Community members are encouraged to bring their personal collections of all things Bell Canada for an informal show-and-tell. Phonebooks, telephones, photographs, we’d love to see them all!

If the weather cooperates, Manfred will be arriving in style in his 1975 Bell truck. You don’t want to miss this exciting event!
Welcome to our new summer students! Erin Hogan and Rose Maagdenberg (left and centre) join our team as Educational Programmers. They will be assisting in developing and running our exciting lineup of summer programs. 

Jessi Robinson (right) is this summer's Collections Management Assistant. Jessi will be assisting staff with an exciting project that involves researching items unrelated to Collingwood's history to determine if they should be transferred to other collecting institutions. This process is called deaccessioning and we'll be providing updates throughout the summer. 
 

Join Sebastian Major, host of Our Fake History, as he explores how podcasting has changed the public history landscape, and tells first-hand stories of the potential dangers of presenting yourself as a historical “truth teller” on the unforgiving internet.
