Experience the long and proud history of Bruce County beginning in the Anishnaabwe Endaat gallery, through pioneer times to present day. Journey through thousands of years of natural and human history; come face-to-face with a baby mammoth, meet the shopkeeper while exploring Bevan's General Store, or play in our technology lab. Explore the Hall of Transportation filled with our rich marine history of Bruce County's lighthouses, shipwrecks and fishing industry; board the HMS General Hunter, an 1812 battleship replica, where an exciting virtual experience awaits as you shoot the cannon to defeat the enemy, then be the conductor of the Bruce County Museum Railway and learn how rail changed travel in Bruce County. Step into the trenches of WWI and follow the life of a Bruce County soldier through the war. Discover all this and more!

A Tapestry of Voices, October 9 - December 31
Did you know that Canada is rich with languages, including over 60 aboriginal languages, Canada's two official languages (French and English), and more than 100 languages that immigrants have brought to our shores. This exhibit explores themes that touch the lives of speakers of every language in Canada, and answer questions like: How have the languages of Canada changed over time? What happens when languages come in contact? How can our languages be maintained for future generations? A travelling exhibition from the Canadian Language Museum.
