Located in Parry Sound, this interactive and educational experience will be open until August 12 at the West Parry Sound District Museum, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Wednesday to Saturday. Explore the ingenuity of Indigenous cultures, showcased in a one-of-a-kind exhibition.
Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for seniors and children aged five to twelve. Children aged four and under enter for free, and West Parry Sound District Museum members receive complimentary admission. Visitors accompanied by a museum member also enjoy discounted entry.
From now until fall 2024, the exhibition will embark on a tour across northern communities, blending science and culture to evoke a sense of pride among First Nation, Inuit, and Métis communities. This tour will have a significant economic impact, fostering growth and diversification in the tourism sector while creating job opportunities at Indigenous Tourism Ontario, Science North, and partner attractions.
