New exhibits at the Dryden and District Museum

Dryden and District Museum has two exhibits coming this fall.

DRYDEN, ON – The Dryden & District Museum has two upcoming exhibits for the fall. “The Mystery and the Marvel: White Otter Castle” shares the history of White Otter Castle and the man behind this unique structure. “There’s No Place Like Home” explores the evolution of house styles in Dryden, from the log house to the ranch home. These exhibits open Tuesday, Sept. 8 and will be on display until Friday, Nov. 20.

“The Mystery and the Marvel: White Otter Castle” features items collected during the restoration of the Castle in the 1990s. Don Marion, Vice President of the Friends of White Otter Castle said, “these artifacts were collected to be shared with the public, to enhance their knowledge and appreciation of this wonderful place and the challenges involved in its construction”.

“There’s No Place Like Home” features images from the Dryden & District Museum Photograph Collection. “During this time the community has spent a lot of time at home. We thought it would be interesting to look at how the architecture of Dryden homes have changed as the community changed.” said Bethany Waite, Museum and Heritage Coordinator.

The Museum continues to follow safety recommendations of the Province of Ontario and the Northwestern Health Unit. Schedule your visit with Museum staff by calling 807.223.4671. Masks or face coverings are required to be worn during your visit.
