The Niagara Historical Museum is hitting the road to bring its historic collections into the communities of Niagara-on-the-Lake, through a series of ‘pop-up’ exhibits that will highlight the history of each community.
The exhibits will be on display in Queenston, St. Davids and Virgil for one month each between July and September, starting with the St. Davids exhibit, which has launched and is being featured at Ravine Vineyard Estate Winery.
The Queenston pop-up exhibit will launch August 1 at the Laura Secord Homestead, followed by the Virgil pop-up exhibit on September 1 at the Meridian Credit Union.
Two additional pop-up displays can also be found at the Jackie Maxwell Studio Theatre and the Chamber of Commerce, and will be on display until the end of October. The display at the Shaw theatre explores the First World War, to complement the festival’s three plays this season on the subject, while the pop-up display in the Chamber is filled with fun facts about Old Town.
The exhibits are sponsored by the Niagara Region through the Niagara Investment in Culture Program and are free to attend.
