Out of the Box - and All About the Box! 

Macaulay Heritage Park (church)

23 Church Street, Picton

Inspired by ICE BOX, visit Macaulay's Church to see dozens of boxes from the collections of the County Museums - big and small, common and unique! Boxes for cigars, jewelry, apples, and even circus acts are on display, many featuring beautiful stencils or hand-painted imagery. Who knew that something as simple as a box could have a story to tell.

 

County Portraits

Wellington Heritage Museum

290 Main Street, Wellington

They say that the eyes are the window to the soul. Find out if that's true by staring into the faces of County folk from years past, represented in paint and photography. These vintage portraits will hang alongside contemporary images of the people we know and love here in PEC. Have people really changed that much in 150+ years? You be the judge.

 

The Indigenous History of Prince Edward County (Permanent)

‌Macaulay Heritage Park

23 Church Street, Picton

The County's human history spans nearly 12,000 years. However, in the past our museums have focused almost solely on the last two centuries, and the story of white Loyalists, who arrived in Prince Edward County in the late 1700s, and their descendants. It is the duty of the County Museums to preserve the County’s history truthfully, and as completely as we can, and this permanent exhibit dedicated to the story of Prince Edward County’s Indigenous peoples provides an opportunity to collaborate with our neighbours at Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory, and acquaint our visitors with an undertold story from this region's past, present, and future.
