Construction and exhibit installation are nearly complete at the new Chimczuk Museum located in the Art Gallery of Windsor building.

The redesigned includes a permanent exhibition on Windsor’s history, an Original Peoples’ gallery and a Hands-On-History gallery for children. Additionally, the new museum site will feature two temporary exhibition spaces and additional artefact storage.

The Chimczuk Museum will house museum artefacts and displays on the first floor and the Art Gallery of Windsor on the two upper floors.  The opening is scheduled for mid February.

Meanwhile, renovations at the François Baby House on Pitt Street are nearing completion. Two new exhibitions are featured. “Windsor’s French Roots” highlights the French heritage of the region, while the other has a focus on the region’s military history and the importance of the François Baby House during that time.
