Blog Guelph: Growing Up In Guelph

[Sue is on vacation for a couple of day so she's left me the keys to the blog, per say.]

I actually grew up in Brantford and London, but I know a lot of Guelphites that have been here all their lives. The Guelph Children's Museum has a great exhibit which follows the lives of four children from four different time periods (Mississauga Indian, First Settler, Victoria Era and Wartime Era). Its a great educational resource where visitors will learn about what it was like to be a child living in Guelph during each time period. Audio stories are presented for each child along with objects such as toys and clothing. Grab your favourite child and head down to the Guelph Civic Museum today!

For those who can't make it to the museum or who can't wait to visit the museum, a virtual version of the exhibit was created. You can visit it at GrowingUpInGuelph.ca.
