In celebration of Canadian Heritage Week, Museum Windsor will host a free admission day at the Chimczuk Museum on Saturday, February 19th, 2022.

New donations will be on display including a parlour chair that belonged to a Windsor family descended from formerly enslaved people, and a community quilt that was created by Windsor Essex Sewing Force (WESF). The quilt is in honour and recognition of those who played a part in getting masks on faces and caps on heads during the pandemic resulting from a call from Windsor Regional Hospital highlighting a need for homemade cloth masks.

While on site, visitors are invited to sign the Museum’s COVID Memory Book and share their thoughts on living through a pandemic. This book will form part of the museum’s COVID collection currently being assembled for the benefit of future residents. There will also be crafts and activities for kids of all ages at both the Chimczuk Museum and the François Baby House.
