Under the Waves: The Waters of Georgian Bay

End Date:
Nov 11/2018



The Museum on Tower Hill's new exhibition, Under the Waves: The Waters of Georgian Bay explores the aquatic life that calls the Bay home while drawing on important issues such as invasive species and water quality. We all know our favourite place on the water, ideal fishing spot or the perfect swimming hole, but do we know what lies beneath the waves? This exhibition asks its visitors, "How do you help protect the Bay?"

This exhibition will be on display from June 27 until November 11, so come see it before it sinks beneath the waves of Georigan Bay!

Avro Arrow: A Dream Denied Exhibition

End Date:
Dec 21/2018

From July 1 to December 21, Avro Arrow: A Dream Denied will be on display in the Founder's Room. This exhibition discusses the Avro Arrow's development, the people and places involved and, of course, its cancellation.The supersonic jet was designed to intercept missiles but the project was eventually cancelled. Some components of the CF-105 Arrow’s “Iroquois” engine were tested at an Orenda facility in Nobel, just outside of Parry Sound. Many questions about the project remain unanswered...

Why was it cancelled? What would have happened had the project not be cancelled?
