Student Museum Musings – Helaina

By Helaina, Social Media Assistant Co-op Student

Hey there! I’m Helaina, the afternoon co-operative student here at the Oshawa Museum until January 2015. I started not too long ago, but already I’ve been swept away with a whole bunch of information about Oshawa, and things that I never knew about. My first day I was taken on a full tour of the Museum and was able to see all the ins and outs. Exploring and investigating the houses was a really fun time because I saw a side of Oshawa that I’ve never seen before. I was really shocked when I learned that there were two archaeological digs here in Oshawa. I had no idea these happened, it was very cool to learn about what was here hundreds of years ago and how Oshawa has changed since then. So far my favourite thing that I’ve learned about is the Henry family. They have a story that I want to explore and tap into. The Robinson family however, also seems like a very interesting family because of certain people in their history. It’s quite fascinating to see how times have changed and remained the same. I hope to have an amazing time here and so far I have not been disappointed!

-Until Next Time, Helaina
