Thunder Bay Museum opens doors to the public once again

The Thunder Bay Museum is glad to be back with its doors now open to the public after seven long months.

THUNDER BAY – The Thunder Bay Museum is glad to be back with its doors now open to the public. For the last seven months of closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the museum was able to offer digital resources on their website, like presentations via Zoom and 360° virtual tours of the museums exhibits.

 “It’s super exciting to have the museum open again, because we get to continue to fulfil our mission to the people of Thunder Bay and Northwestern Ontario to educate the public on the history of our great area,” said Scott Bradly, executive director of the Thunder Bay Museum. “We’ve been on hold for seven months, and we’ve been putting out digital content and trying to provide a lot of stuff online, through research requests and all that stuff, but now we get to do it in person again.”

Now that they’re open and able to allow the public back inside the building, the museum is excited to share its 3 new exhibits, “The Science of Guinness World Records”, the “2021 Grand National ‘Crossroads’”, and a local quilt exhibit from Thunder Bay quilters.

The Science of Guinness World Records is an interactive exhibit all about the science behind many of the world records set in the Guinness Book of World Records and will be available from July 26 to August 26.

The 2021 Grand National ‘Crossroads’, is a collection of 48 fibre art pieces from all over Canada juried by Tracey Aubin, Debora Barlow and Judy Villett interpreting the theme – ‘Crossroads’ and is available from 26 July to September 25.

The third new exhibit is a quilt exhibit, which was created by the Thunder Bay Quilters Guild, features quilted works by local artists that are all created from a base of the same three fabrics.

The Thunder Bay Museum is open daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
