With July and August quickly approaching, many people have already begun to plan out what to do for the summer. Here are 3 reasons to add Oshawa Community Museum to your list.
1. Oshawa’s Past
At the OCM we pride ourselves in keeping Oshawa’s history alive. With Henry House set up as a 19th century home, you will be given the chance to see what is what like to live in Oshawa back then. In Robinson House is where we keep our rotating exhibit spaces to make sure there is always something new to look at. Currently we have a school room, general store, an archaeology exhibit and our newest exhibit IT’Story which is based on our collections.
2. Our location
With the museum being located in the beautiful Lakeview Park, one can really spend the whole day here. You could pop in for a tour, and then spend the rest of the day in the park enjoying the fresh air, delicious food/ice cream. Also once the weather starts to warm up you can go swimming in Lake Ontario to cool off!
3. Air Conditioning
Yes we have it! Although over 100 years ago air conditioning did not exist, it surely does now and we love it!
So why not come in to Guy house to start a tour!
