The Arnprior and District Museum will be hosting an exciting travelling exhibit from the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM), from Sept. 12 — Nov. 9. Canada at Play: 100 Years of Games, Toys, and Sports is a bilingual exhibit that takes a look at our favourite games and toys over the past 130 years. The new exhibit is made possible by a grant from the Government of Canada’s Museums Assistance Program.

This exhibit is tailored to visitors of all ages and truly is a multi-generation event. Children’s program co-ordinator/facilitator, Becky Ranger, hopes to see families coming in together;

“Kids, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents will enjoy the displays and activities available. We are also hoping the exhibit will attract interest from local and area schools, as we will have educational programs offered both in the museum and as a travelling program.”
