January has arrived! Here's what's happening at the Museum. 
On behalf of the Collingwood Museum’s staff and volunteers, I am pleased to wish you a happy and healthy 2020. We are very excited to continue to serve our local community by offering engaging opportunities for involvement, particularly with the objectives outlined in our new strategic plan. Again, we thank everyone who helped to create this exciting document that will guide our efforts through to 2024. We look forward to seeing you at the Museum very soon!
 
Melissa Shaw, Museum Supervisor
The Collingwood Museum is excited to announce Lindsay Cook has assumed the role of Museum Assistant. Lindsay has a degree in Museum Studies and has previously worked in collections management, exhibit planning and educational programming for museums and historic sites throughout Canada. Prior to working for the Town, Lindsay volunteered for the Town’s Heritage Advisory Committee, Doors Open Collingwood and was an active member of the BIA.  
Don't let the winter blahs get you down. We are getting active as we move through Collingwood's heritage in the first PA Day program of 2020!

Participants will discover winter themed artifacts at the museum before snowshoeing over to Central Park Arena for crafts and activities. We're going to have "snow" much fun!

(Snowshoes will be provided and winter clothing is mandatory.) 
 
Our next featured Community Collector is Gary Reid. The exhibit will feature Gary’s handmade models of early local business vehicles and wooden carvings. His collection will be sure to evoke memories of Collingwood’s past. You may have seen Gary’s handiwork previously when it was on display at the GNE. Gary’s detailed models will be on exhibit from early January until the end of March.
