Working with the Region and City of Kitchener, in order to help flatten the curve of new cases of COVID-19, THEMUSEUM will be closed to the public until further notice.


A Message from our CEO – THEMUSEUM COVID-19 Update

The safety and wellbeing of our visitors are of the utmost importance to THEMUSEUM; therefore, we have been monitoring and assessing new developments for COVID-19 daily. In addition, we have been in consultation with the Commissioner of Public Health for Waterloo Region and our leadership team is meeting daily to assess worldwide updates.

Based on consultation with both the Region of Waterloo and City of Kitchener it has been determined that in the best interest of all that THEMUSEUM close immediately until further notice.

Due to the ever-evolving situation, we apologize for the inconvenience this may cause. We continue to monitor the situation closely and will update via email, our website and newsletter.

We are living in unprecedented times when the importance of things in our lives have become shuffled into a proper list of priorities.

THEMUSEUM has been my passion for the last dozen years and to see it temporarily closed is ok. Together we must flatten the curve of new cases and together beat this nasty virus. We will.

So thank you for your support. As Members, Volunteers, Guests, Donors and the incredible team we have built something really unique. In time we will reopen and continue our path to sustainability and to building a new, larger facility to awe, inspire and enlighten.

Until then, wash your hands and see you soon.
