March Break At Museums

Owen Sound | by Daryl Morris  

Two Owen Sound Museums have programs this week for children.

The Owen Sound Museums are hoping to make this March Break fun -- but still educational.

Interpreter Trevor Pfeffer says they have programs running for kids every day this week starting today at both sites.

The first two programs are at the Billy Bishop Home & Museum.

Tuesday's event is Flying Aces, and Pfeffer says they'll learn about planes, pilots and parachutes.

But he says they'll have some fun making parachutes and paper planes, and he's hoping the weather is nice enough to take them outside.

Wednesday is Parlor Play, and Pfeffer says they'll be playing games that kids would have played in the Victorian Era.

"All Aboard the CNR" takes place Thursday at the Marine & Rail Museum.

Pfeffer says they'll visit the old Canadian National Railway station and learn about jobs on the railway, as well as build a wooden train.

On Friday is Marine Madness to build boats and play games.

Pfeffer says parents have to pre-register their kids and each event is 10 dollars.

If you sign up more than one child at a time, it's 18 dollars for two.

Parents can also attend the events for free with their kids.

All of the programs run from 10 AM to 2 PM.
