Description: For over 60 years, the museum has been selectively acquiring artifacts of local and national significance. Through exhibitions, public programs, educational tours, and a museum gift shop, the museum staff provide opportunities for people to engage, interact, and enjoy the community’s stories and artifacts. The Chatham-Kent Museum also includes the restored Milner Heritage House that depicts the turn-of-the-century lifestyle of a successful industrialist and his family. Costumed interpreters take visitors back in time to 1905 when stereoscopes, gramophones, and magic lanterns were the family’s means of entertainment and a ‘modern’ kitchen consisted of a wood stove, ice box and a new, all-purpose ‘Chatham’ cupboard.
