Winter brings new events to the county museum

With snow in the air and the holidays just around the corner, the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre has officially opened registration for its roster of new 2022-2023 winter events. They feature a diversity of activities and entertainment happening now through February.
Holiday-themed events include special visits from Santa, the museum’s Light Up the Holidays event on Dec. 15 and a festive Merry Munchkins program for ages 18 months to four years. The museum will be screening a few well-loved musicals (including Les Misérables, Fiddler on the Roof and Mary Poppins) in the Bruce Power theatre on select dates throughout December.
The Break Out of the Bruce Book Club will begin in February, with the group reading The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab, offered both in person and virtually. Seniors 55-plus will also have a second chance to flex their acting chops by crafting a monologue in a professionally guided workshop.
In January, the museum will open its major winter exhibit Made in Bruce, highlighting the fascinating inventions and patents of past local entrepreneurs (including W.A. Gerolamy’s fanning mill, Krug Brothers’ dresser drawers and Donald McKenzie’s hockey stick).
The much-anticipated Animal Antics Family Day show will take place on Feb. 20, with live presentations by Zoo-to-You and Speaking of Wildlife. Pet professionals will offer tips and tricks for training, and an adoption clinic will be onsite.
Registration is now open. For full listings and an event calendar, visit
