First exhibit of 2023 set to open at Bruce County Museum

On January 14, the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre is set to open its first exhibit of 2023, Made in Bruce, showcasing the innovative contributions of past Bruce County residents.

This exhibit will highlight Bruce County inventors who made their mark by applying creativity to develop inventions and modifications that set products apart from competition.

“Innovation isn’t something that just happens in urban centres,” says Museum Director Cathy McGirr. “Innovation is all about making things better and in many cases out of necessity. This exhibition showcases the innovative spirit and resourcefulness of many individuals within Bruce County.”

Guests will discover patented inventions and innovations such as W.A. Gerolamy’s fanning mill, Krug Bros Ltd.’s dresser drawers, Elhanan Bowman’s phone apparatus, Donald McKenzie’s hockey stick, and more.

Members see the exhibit for free; general admission applies. Full exhibit details can be found at
