COVID-19 Closure

The health and safety of our ECRM community is of the utmost importance to us, and as such in light of recent announcements from the Ontario Chief Medical Officer of Health and others we are taking steps to prevent the risks and spread of the COVID-19 virus.

The Museum building will be closed as of 5 pm March 17th and will not be open to the public until further notice, and all scheduled events are suspended until we are able to re-open to the public and host large gatherings.

The health and safety of our visitors, staff, and volunteers is of top priority to us in these challenging times. We will continue to take guidance from our public health officials regarding the duration of this closure.

Thank you for your patience and understanding at this time. As our staff move between work locations please communicate with us by email and check our website and Facebook page for updates.
