Winter fun at the museum

Wondering what to do on a cold winter day? You should consider a visit to the museum.

The Log Cabin, which was a typical family home for Canadian Early Settlers, showcases what they would have built by hand, with no electricity. The Bogarttown Schoolhouse was a school for 112 years before being used at the first location for the Whitchurch-Stouffville Museum. You can also check out the Brown House which isn’t brown. It’s a red bricked Victorian farmhouse, with all the thick wooden framing, its quite the site to see.

Did you hear? The museum has an exhibit showcasing the Jean-Baptiste Lainé Site. There are over 100 artifacts from the archeological dig conducted in 2003-2005 right in the heart of Stouffville. It includes an interactive visual experience to see what a Longhouse would have looked like.

Looking for something for your children to do for the upcoming PA Day on January 17? The museum is running a Baking Bonanza session from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Using a variety of recipes, participants will measure, mix and bake treats to take home.
