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.
If you have stories, photographs, or even artifacts related to your Pandemic experiences and would like to donate them please visit here: https://www.thunderbaymuseum.com/covid-19-stories/
It is unclear at this time if the Thunder Bay Museum will be holding summer camp in 2020. Registration has been put on hold for the moment and we will let you know as soon as possible if/when this changes.
Our 2020 Classic Car Raffle has been extended, the prize draw will now take place on 1 May 2021, 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.
