The new Chimczuk Museum was officially opened by Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens and members of City Council, Thursday morning.

“Our Chimczuk Museum is a tremendous attraction with so much rich history to share,” said Mayor Drew Dilkens.  “And now, between our new museum; the Art Gallery of Windsor; the François Baby House; the Capitol Theatre, home of the Windsor Symphony Orchestra; and our beautiful aquatics complex, we have a host of top quality family attractions for residents and visitors alike—all within our downtown core.”

The 11,000-square-foot Chimczuk Museum occupies the main floor of 401 Riverside Drive West, while the Art Gallery of Windsor occupies floors two and three.

As part of the project, Windsor’s Community Museum has rebranded to reflect its expanded scope.  “Museum Windsor” encompasses the François Baby House, the Chimczuk Museum and the Interpretive Centre at the Duff-Baby House in Sandwich.

The community can enjoy the museum for free this Saturday from 10am to 5pm.   A full day of exhibit tours, entertainment, and family-friendly all ages activities are planned.
