Looking for something interesting to do this summer on a budget?
Drop by the Whitchurch-Stouffville Museum and discover the Town’s history and heritage and take part in tours and exhibitions – all at no charge.
“We are thrilled to offer free general admission to the Museum, helping to remove barriers for families,” says Curator/Supervisor Krista Rauchenstein. “The Whitchurch-Stouffville Museum offers access to local heritage through activities, general tours, exhibition and more. We welcome new and returning visitors and look forward to seeing everyone this summer.”
General admission fees will be waived from July 6 until December 31. Some exhibitions and events may carry an additional charge.
“Free general admission to the museum allows everyone to enjoy the exhibits, resources and the beautiful facility,” says Stouffville Mayor Iain Lovatt. “It ensures equity in programming, fair access to resources, and equitable opportunities for participation for underserved and underrepresented groups.”
