Bad weather means a good day at the Simcoe County Museum!
Wet days aren't exactly rare in Simcoe County. So, when the Heavens open, come to the Simcoe County Museum where there's always plenty to do. Every rainy day this summer pull up your hood, put on your rubber boots and head to the Museum. There are so many wonderful indoor activities, you'll quickly forget there was ever a cloud in the sky. Play board games in the galleries, take a rainy day tour, explore the Museum with our scavenger hunt adventure, or even taste some historical baking. Every rainy day will be something new and exciting, so make sure you come to them all! Program runs every day that there is rain in the forecast for Minesing between 10:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m., Monday – Saturday.
When it rains, don't worry. We have bad conditions covered!
