We are asking that all visitors pre-book their visit to Huronia Museum by either phone or email.
If you are showing any symptoms or are arriving from your primary residence which finds itself in either a Red Zone or a Grey Zone, we are asking that you not visit the museum, in the interest of our community’s health.
Huronia Museum and Penetanguishene Centennial Museum really miss seeing each other and sharing all the neat things in their collections with one another. Staff at Huronia Museum thought would be a great idea to reach out to Penetanguishene Centennial museum and challenge each other to find an artifact every week that highlights the diversity of their collections for the community. Join us each week as we give each other special challenges to find the most interesting things in our collections!
