Joseph Brant Museum is hosting its annual Open House on Wednesday (Feb. 23) from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.. The Museum is located on North Shore Boulevard, just east of Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital, in Burlington, Ontario.
You can learn about one of Burlington’s earliest settlers — Mohawk Indian Chief and Captain Joseph Brant, Thayendanegea.
You can also explore the latest exhibit, The Crazy Years: The Fashion Renaissance of the Roaring 1920s. The exhibition features several dresses, coats and furs from the Eileen Collard Costume Collection, and hats, shoes, purses and other popular accessories from the era.
A media component showcases images and music of the period visually highlighting a decade recovering from the First World War and embracing a new-found freedom and attitude that included the women’s rights movement, the jazz era and the influence of black culture.
An added feature for Joseph Brant Museum guests will be an antique clinic (Noon – 4 p.m.). Guests are invited to bring items that will be professionally appraised. Appraisal costs are $5 for one item and $10 for up to three items.
Also presented will be crafts, historic re-enactors, hands-on activities, and light refreshments.
Admission is free to the Joseph Brant museum for the open house.
