Family Day set to bring Bruce County history to life at the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre

This Family Day (Monday, February 19), see Bruce County history come to life at the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre with interactive live theatre shows by award-winning theatre company Live History.

Guests will journey back through time as they travel through the museum’s exhibits, reaching five different checkpoints along the way. Each checkpoint will have its own local historical character in costume who will present guests with a variety of different puzzles and quests to solve. Your choices will matter! Will you help or hinder? The clock is ticking, with a one-hour time limit to conquer your selected challenges!

Shows will run throughout the day from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM, happening every 15 minutes. Each show takes approximately 30-45 minutes to complete. The show is suitable for school-age children to adults.

The Museum will also have drop-in improv classes to keep the theatre fun going, led by professional acting coaches Leo Dragonieri and Julia Scaringi!

Southampton Rotary Club will be on site offering a BBQ lunch from 11:00 AM. Cash and debit accepted.

Family Day is proudly presented by Ontario Power Generation.
