The museum, as well as the art gallery, provides tours for school groups, bus tours, or other special interest groups. We can focus the tour on a specific aspect of the museum, or it can be “self-guided” and our staff will provide support and answer any questions. We always encourage the group to wander through the gallery as well to view the current art exhibit.
The museum offers guided tours for groups of 15 or more. If you and your group are interested in having a tour of the museum, please contact the museum during our hours of operation.
For school groups, we will work with the teacher to incorporate aspects of our museum, or gallery, into the current Ontario curriculum and reflect upon topics that are currently being studied in class. We welcome elementary, secondary, and post-secondary groups to our institution.
Focuses can include:
- Art: elements and principles of design; potential bookings for artist talks or workshops; analyzing artwork
- History: story of the Dionne Quintuplets and the impact on our region; logging and lumber industry; shipping industry; analyzing historical photos; museum quiz
We are currently in the midst of evolving our educational programming. Please check back for updates, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us 705-752-2282 if you would like to discuss collaborating on a program.
