Museum Windsor Celebrates 60th Birthday
(WINDSOR, ON) – On May 4 at 10am, the François Baby House will unveil a new display entitled 60 Years of Your Community Museum, featuring an overview of the museum’s history. Originally called the Hiram Walker Historical Museum, Museum Windsor first opened its doors on May 7, 1958, in the nationally designated François Baby House.
The property dates back to 1812 and went through extensive renovations to prepare it for its new role as a museum. Today, Museum Windsor has grown to include the historic François Baby House and the Chimczuk Museum.
Also on May 4, the contents of a time capsule created in 1988 will be opened. To mark the occasion, sealed letters from the time capsule will be opened and read for the first time in 30 years.
Celebrations continue on May 5, between 10am and 5pm. Stop by the François Baby House to see the new display and receive an old fashioned candy stick, while supplies last.
