Chatham-Kent Museum re-opening on July 28

The Chatham-Kent Museum is thrilled to announce that the museum will be re-opening on July 28 with a new travelling exhibition on loan from the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum (CAFM): ‘A Taste of Science’. The Imagination Station and Gift Shop will re-open as well.

‘A Taste of Science’, which was developed as part of CAFM’s food literacy initiative, is an interactive exhibition that engages all your senses. The exhibition highlights the role science plays in delaying food decay and keeping food nutritious and safe for us to eat. This bilingual exhibition is suitable for all ages and offers menu items for both the mind and the imagination. Originally launched in 2013, and developed with support from partners such as Nestlé Canada, the Government of Canada and Bernardin Ltd., the exhibit has enabled the CAFM to bring this new exhibition and food literacy programs to audiences in the National Capital Region and across Canada.

‘A Taste of Science’ also features artifacts from the Chatham-Kent Museum, Ridge House Museum and Milner Heritage House and fun interactive components.

The Chatham-Kent Museum would like to acknowledge the financial support of Heritage Canada in bringing ‘A Taste of Science’ to the museum.

The Chatham-Kent Museum team offers each visitor an enjoyable, and most importantly, safe, experience. We have enhanced safety measures in line with COVID-19 public health guidelines. These protocols include, but are not limited to, new public hours, reduced visitor capacity, timed admission, and enhanced cleaning procedures.

The Chatham-Kent Museum will be open for pre-booked visits Wednesdays to Fridays between the hours of 11AM to 4PM. Visit the museum website at for a link to our registration system and book a visit today!
