The long awaited grand opening of the Guelph Civic Museum is this weekend. I am so happy and proud that as a community we were able to save an important piece of our city’s heritage and history and find a new use for it. There will always be those few who will scoff at the amount of time and money spent on this place, but I for one feel that this is a great investment and will continue to be for decades to come for everyone.
The new Guelph Civic Museum is rolling out the welcome mat on its opening this weekend, February 24 to 26, inviting the public to open houses that include behind-the-scenes tours of collections storage areas. The Museum will be open on Friday, February 24 from 5 to 9 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m. Admission is free on opening weekend.
