Grey Roots Museum and Archives to Reopen February 1
Grey Roots Museum and Archives is pleased to announce that the facility is reopening to the public on Tuesday, February 1. The Museum will welcome visitors back with the launch of two major new exhibitions, and a recently updated Children’s Gallery.
Launching with the reopening are Hockey, a travelling exhibition developed by the Canadian Museum of History, and The Good ol’ Hockey Game, developed by Grey Roots staff with support from community partners. Each exhibit focuses on Canada’s abiding national pastime, with Hockey offering audio archives, photographs, and reproductions of key artefacts which present hockey highlights from yesterday and today. The Good ol’ Hockey Game shines light on local hockey greats over the years including some of today’s talented young stars. Visitors will explore local hockey memorabilia, autographed jerseys, and profiles of celebrated players.
“If anything, the closure has given us more time to ensure our two new exhibitions absolutely delight once we reopen,” says Jill Paterson, Grey Roots Manager. “We’ve put together a truly memorable experience for visitors, one which hockey fans of all ages are sure to enjoy.”
In accordance with the Province of Ontario’s vaccination certificate policy, all visitors over the age of 12 must present proof of full vaccination to visit the museum. Proof of vaccination is not required for patrons using the restrooms or purchasing admission and merchandise. Additionally, physical distancing and the use of facemasks is required while inside the facility.
