Bruce County Museum celebrates Family Day with Live History show

It was a fun Family Day at Bruce County Museum and Cultural Centre on Monday (Feb. 19th) as visitors of all ages participated in a variety of activities.

The interactive live theatre shows by award-winning theatre company ‘Live History’ ran throughout the day as families journeyed back through time visiting five different historic exhibits.  At each, an historical character in costume presented visitors with a variety of puzzles and quests to solve.

It was fun for all ages as families participated in each challenging historical tour that took approximately 30-45 minutes to complete.
