Kitchener, ON | March 16, 2022 — THEMUSEUM in Kitchener, Ontario is thrilled to announce a final extension of The Rolling Stones | UNZIPPED exhibition in Waterloo Region.

‘I am pleased we have been able to negotiate a final extension of UNZIPPED with the band’s Manager. Despite having our opening delayed a month, then being shuttered for another month, the attendance has been solid and on track to meet our projections. The ongoing demand we have experienced from tourists and those living in the Region of Waterloo has led to the ultimate demand for a final extension, and we are grateful to be able to accommodate that,” said David Marskell, CEO, THEMUSEUM.
