MacLachlan Museum Celebrates 30 Years

May 22, 2013 -

New permanent exhibitions, extensive renovations now on view

2013 marks the 30th anniversary of the MacLachlan Woodworking Museum at Grass Creek Park. The 2013 season features new exhibitions and the completion of several transformative renovations to the site.

New and updated exhibitions include:

  • Foundations: The Making of a Museum, an update to the iconic log house that includes new floors and exhibition panels
  • My MacLachlan, a retrospective look at the Museum's history through the memories of those who helped to shape it, featuring selected objects from the collection
  • Ivor Blower: Inside the Mind of a Collector, highlighting the hand plane collection donated by Ivor Blower and exploring the uniquely human urge to collect

In addition, 2013 marks the Museum's first time as host to an artist in residence. Internationally celebrated sculptor Shayne Dark will create new works on the Museum grounds from July 1 to August 10. Dark's works are also on display at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre until November 3, 2013. This partnership allows viewers to get a sense of Dark's work both in-progress and in its finished form.

Admission to all exhibitions is included with admission, $5.15 for adults, $4.40 for students and seniors, and $1.55 for children under 12.

The MacLachlan Woodworking Museum is located at 2993 Highway 2 East., 613-542-0543 or visit www.woodworkingmuseum.ca
