When we are open once again, experience the long and proud history of Bruce County beginning in the newly updated 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 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.  Step into the trenches of WWI and follow the life of a Bruce County soldier through the war.  Discover all this and more!
