Every year the Thunder Bay Museum holds a special Taste of History dinner. This history-themed event takes place around a particular event, person, or period in the past, and the evening is complete with a menu prepared from the time-period and a speaker related to the theme. Past themes have included: Titanic, Shakespeare, the Fur Trade, the silent film era, and the War of 1812.

This year our dinner commemorated the bicentennial of Sir John A. Macdonald with a lecture entitled “Macdonald at 200: New Reflections and Legacies” by Patrice Dutil of Ryerson University. A big thank you to everyone who came out to support the Museum and help make our 2015 Taste of History Dinner such a huge success. A special thanks to the Prince Arthur Hotel for hosting the event and to all of the prize donors.
