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”).
Admission is by donation.
