Bringing the Museums to You
To provide those who can’t easily visit the Billy Bishop Home and Museum - A National Historic Site or the Marine & Rail Museum, the Owen Sound Museums has launched a new outreach programme to bring a museum experience directly to people… where they live, where they learn, where they’re comfortable.
Museum Ambassadors will visit off-site locations with artefacts, photos, objects and interactive digital-based materials. The programmes that “Bringing Museums to You” offer are “The Life of Billy Bishop,” “Living in Victorian Times,” “Owen Sound’s Rail History,” and “Local Marine and Shipping Heritage.”
A key to the success of this project are our volunteer Museum Ambassadors. Do you enjoy history and interacting with people? You should volunteer as a Bringing the Museums to You Ambassador.
For those interested in finding out more about Bringing the Museums to You or if you want to become involved as a Museum Ambassador, you can contact the Billy Bishop Home and Museum - A National Historic Site at 519 371 0031 or via email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
