Due to health concerns the Thunder Bay Museum is closed to the public starting on Wednesday, 18 March 2020.

The closure includes all programs, lectures, special events, rentals, tours, and in person research in our archive and library. 

We are offering a FREE LIVE WEBINAR SERIES called HUMP DAY HISTORY: more information can be found here: https://www.thunderbaymuseum.com/webinars/

Refunds will be issued for those rentals already scheduled and prepaid.  Though we respectfully ask that if you have a rental that could be rescheduled that you consider that option first.  

The Thunder Bay Historical Museum Society Annual General Meeting scheduled for 24 March has been postponed, a new date will be announced here and on social media once it has been determined.

Our 2020 Classic Car Raffle will continue as planned, more information can be found here: https://www.thunderbaymuseum.com/community-programming/special-events-activities/classic-car-raffle/

The Museum’s Taste of History Dinner has been rescheduled for Friday, 18 September 2020.  Already purchased tickets will remain valid.  For more information about this event visit here: https://www.thunderbaymuseum.com/community-programming/special-events-activities/taste-of-history/

The staff will be available by phone or email to answer research requests, however we ask for patience during this challenging time, due to the shutdown order from the Province of Ontario our staff are teleworking and do not have access to all of the Museum’s archival materials. 

We will re-evaluate the situation after the the Province of Ontario lifts the mandatory shutdown order, which currently lasts until 8 April. 

Any announcements about when we will reopen shall be made on our social media and this website.
