Chatham-Kent Museum

For over 60 years, the museum has been selectively acquiring artifacts of local and national significance including three dimensional objects, art, and natural science specimens.

Highlights in the collection include artifacts from the War of 1812, a nationally designated Gray Dort automobile, several locally made horse drawn vehicles, and, of course, our world famous mummy.

The museum is comprised of a main floor area that currently houses a semi-permanent exhibit entitled “Horse Power: A History of Vehicle Manufacturing in Chatham-Kent” and several temporary exhibit galleries that feature changing exhibits on a variety of themes. To complement these exhibits, the professional staff of the Chatham-Kent Museum offers a variety of curriculum-based school programs, public programs, and special events.

The museum also maintains an archival collection and research area that is a popular destination for genealogists, authors, researchers, and students. Among the museum’s archival and research holdings are several extensive local photograph collections.

Come and enjoy a heritage experience at the Chatham-Kent Museum (or, using the dynamic marketing slogan of Gray Dort: “You Will Like It”).

The Chatham-Kent Museum is open 7 days a week from 1pm to 5pm.  Admission is by donation.
