Welcome Little RAY of Sunshine!
Simcoe County Museum typically offers a range of travelling, community, and temporary exhibits in our Simcoe Gallery. This year, many great exhibits planned for 2021 have been postponed or cancelled because the Museum is closed. Since we can't have visitors in the Simcoe Gallery, we have decided to try and turn all of Simcoe County into a giant exhibit space and we want YOU to be the Curators! A new community exhibit, called Little Ray of Sunshine, invites you to spread light and joy by sharing Little Ray of Sunshine in every town, village, and corner of Simcoe County!
About Little Ray of Sunshine
Little Ray of Sunshine landed at the Simcoe County Museum in May 2021. Little Ray enjoyed visiting the galleries for a while but became lonely and wanted to see more people. Little Ray wants to travel all through the County visiting businesses, libraries, homes, and anywhere else there should be a Little Ray of Sunshine to brighten our days!
