Tinkerer, Curator, Artist, Spy (FULL-NO SPACES REMAINING) 

July 11-15, 2022

Make, build and go behind-the-scenes at the Huron County Museum! Find out how museum curators use secret codes and go close-up in the Forgotten exhibit to find out why photographers were both artists and scientists. Create a mini-exhibit, design a disguise, invent a machine, solve a mystery, and check out the strangest, weirdest, most unbelievable artifacts from the museum’s collection.

Eco Action (FULL, NO SPACES REMAINING) 

July 25-29, 2022

Get active to discover more about our natural environment in the past, present and future and how to protect it! Imagine the neighbourhood of the future, try sustainable technologies from the past, and decide how you will be a steward of the land and water today. Build and invent with upcycled materials and get your hands (a little bit) dirty gardening.

World Famous (FULL-No spaces remaining) 

Aug. 8-12, 2022

Be a globetrotter & travel the world (and through time)! Imagine your own international travels, explore cultures from around the globe close-to-home, plan for a journey by plane, train, automobile, boat or animal, and find out why people in the past have moved to Huron County. Discover what makes Huron County known around the world: from our famous faces, to the special things made and grown and found here — including the world’s largest salt mine.
