easter-poster 2015
It is time for the 5th Annual Glow in the Dark Easter Egg Hunt!

This year we will be holding it on Saturday, April 4, 2015 from 1 to 3 PM.  Admission is $1 and a non-perishable food item per participant.

The hunt is held in the main gallery of the museum.  Entrance is limited so that we don’t have any over crowding in the dark, so you may have to line up for a few minutes.  All children must be accompanied by an adult.  Instructions on how to complete the hunt will be given at the time of entrance.

All participants will go home with a prize.

This fun and unique event is made possible thanks to the generous support of the Midland Lions Club, our fantastic partner for the last 5 years!

Huronia Museum maintains Category A status as a Museum

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: (Thursday, September 11, 2014)

Huronia Museum maintains Category A status as a Museum

Although Huronia Museum has been challenged with building issues for a number of years now it is delighted to report, that after a recent review by the Department of Canadian Heritage’s Movable Cultural Property Directorate, the museum has maintained its status as a Category A museum which collects and preserves the community’s heritage.

“Category A” museums meet the requirements for designation as such as they have the capacity to preserve certified cultural property and make it available to public.

Huronia Museum is currently open to the public seven days a week until Thanksgiving from 9 am to 5 pm with the exception of Wednesdays where the museum is open from 9 am to 9 pm.

Huronia Museum currently has a reduced admission rate as a portion of the main exhibit floor is closed as it cares for artifacts which require conservation from a flood in mid-August.

 For further information on Huronia Museum please contact the museum at 705-526-2844

Huronia Museum is a not-for-profit charity, which collects, preserves, exhibits and educates on the history of Huronia.
