80 in 80 historical display opens Sept. 27



The Chatham-Kent Museum is set to open 80 in 80: 1943-2023, an exhibition to mark 80 years of building and preserving our local history collection.

The exhibition begins Sept. 27.
Explore a display of eighty artefacts highlighting the breadth and depth of history to be found in the Chatham-Kent Museum collection. See the Gray-Dort motorcar – certified as Canadian Cultural Property – an authentic Titanic menu card, the fossilized remains of a prehistoric creature, a baseball signed by a member of Chatham Coloured All-Stars team, and more.
Discover more about our local history on the shelves of Out in the Open, a visible artefact storage area in the exhibition galleries of the museum. Visitors can grab a flashlight and peruse almost 5,000 artefacts from the museum’s three-dimensional collection.
The museum is open for drop-in visits Wednesday through Sunday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Thursday 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Admission is by donation.
