The Goderich Signal-Star - - Opinion -

The Huron County Mu­seum’s staff has been work­ing with stu­dents from the Avon Mait­land Dis­trict School Board’s S.O.A.R. pro­gram since Septem­ber of this year. Mu­seum staff has been teach­ing the stu­dents about all as­pects of Mu­seum op­er­a­tions in­clud­ing cu­ra­to­rial work, ar­ti­fact care, ex­hibit cre­ation and de­sign, ar­chives pro­ce­dures, mar­ket­ing, guest ser­vices and more. On Novem­ber 17, the stu­dents will use their new knowl­edge to takeover man­age­ment of the Huron County Mu­seum.

Stop in any­time be­tween 1-4pm to meet the kids and see the ex­hibit they have cre­ated called “Din­ner Back Then”.

At the re­quest of the stu­dents, ad­mis­sion to Takeover Day will be by cash do­na­tion to the Huron County Food Bank. The stu­dent ex­hibit Din­ner Back Then will be on dis­play at the Huron County Mu­seum un­til De­cem­ber 1, 2018.
