Museum of Dufferin Visited

“A Moment in Time!”
Watch for the Museum of Dufferin!
If you head north Airport Road from the GTA (Greater Toronto Area), you will eventually reach the Museum of Dufferin!
If you go by the Museum of Dufferin, you will have missed the opportunity to find out more about Dufferin County.
You can’t miss the Museum of Dufferin building. It’s the big barn with the red roof.
If the Museum of Dufferin open when you are passing by, you should stop and take a look!
If it’s not open, you should plan a trip back to visit and explore.
There is so much to see and do at the Museum, fun and interesting for the whole family.
The Museum specializes in the history and heritage of Dufferin County.
The ground floor of the Museum of Dufferin, especially the “kids education” area.
The rest of the ground floor is dedicated to telling the stories of Dufferin County.
Throughout this area, there are lots of Dufferin County mementos.
On the perimeter walls of the Museum of Dufferin, there are large photographs of the people who helped form the “sole” of the County.
In the interior, there’s a log cabin!
The inside of the cabin shows how life was in “days gone by“.
It’s interesting to see how life was back then!
Back in the “old days“, the County didn’t abide by “evil spirits” (booze).
The Whiskey Business was big (hidden) business back then.
But some in the County didn’t want it, so…
… “temperance and temptation” were words to “live by“!
Yes, plenty to see on the ground floor, but what about the second floor?
I think that the second floor sums up the history of “Cornflower Glass“.
The exhibit shows just how versatile Cornflower Glassware is.
And, why it’s so collectible.
Back downstairs we take another look at all the displays.
The sign of the counter said “On this site in 1881 nothing happened” but that certainly can’t be said for now!
We would have enjoyed exploring the “Silo Exhibit“, but it was closed during our visit.
We’ll be back!
