Chatham Cultural Centre

Discover, learn and laugh at the Chatham Cultural Centre! We are located at 75 William Street North in the heart of downtown Chatham across from Tecumseh Park. The Cultural Centre presents a unique combination of art, history, and entertainment - a perfect destination offering the Thames Art Gallery, Chatham-Kent Museum, Kiwanis Theatre and historic Milner Heritage House. Continually hosts cultural activities, special events, theatre performances and showcases the arts for over 50 years. 

There is always something new to do and see at the centre - exhibitions, tours, classes, lectures and entertainment. Find unique items and treasures in the Chatham-Kent Museum Gift Shop.

Although located at 53 Erie Street South in Ridgetown, the Ridge House Museum is also associated with the Cultural Centre. ARTspace is a joint initiative between the Thames Art Gallery and an interested group of Chatham-Kent artists. It is located at 165 1/2 King Street West in Chatham.
