Today we have some much-anticipated news- We’re so excited to announce that we will be reopening Monday July 26th!

Here’s the low down-

First, you’ll need to book ahead of time – either on Facebook, our number at 519-352-4799, or our email at buxton@ciaccess.com. We’ll be open Monday to Sunday, with tour time slots at 10:30, 12:30, and 2:30. Tours will last 50 minutes maximum and you will be with a guide for the entirety of your visit here. At this time, we will take tours with no more than ten people. When you are booked in, we will ask you a small series of questions, including ways to contact you and where you will be visiting from. WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING WALK-INS AT THIS TIME!

Secondly, masks will be mandatory for all visitors! If you do not have a mask, one will be available to purchase for $3. Sanitization stations will be made available throughout the museum. Debit or credit is preferred. Your safety and the safety of our staff are paramount!

We can’t wait to see you!
