Museum@Night - experience the Brockville Museum in a whole new way, April 20th, & June 1
Explore the museum like never before through a series of uniquely themed after-hours events for adults featuring live entertainment, themed snacks, cash bar, and interactive activities. Events kick off at 8pm.
Friday, April 20: Brockville’s National Treasure: decipher the code to uncover a lost Canadian treasure right here in the museum's collection. Using a recently uncovered (fictional) historical document, you'll have to help museum staff reveal the identity of this treasure lost in the museum's collection by solving riddles. Our snacks for this event will take on a very Canadian theme and music will be provided by the very talented Matthew O'Halloran.
Friday, June 1: History or Hearsay Cafe: decide which object label is true and which is pure fiction. With all new objects and labels for 2018, leisurely explore each station and see if you can identify the "fake" stories. There will also be a challenging round of Brockville trivia accompanied by delectable desserts and music provided by the lite jazz trio "Never Too Late".
Get a great deal by purchasing your tickets in advance - only $12 per ticket per event (to be purchased by noon the Wednesday prior) or $15 after that or at the door. Tickets are available online through Snapd Tix to purchase tickets for the entire series or indivivdual events or in person at the museum.
