BruceGreySimcoe is rich with history and each county has its own regional museum to showcase those stories. In Bruce County, the Bruce County Museum and Cultural Centre located in Southampton has family-friendly and interactive exhibits to keep your kids entertained and educated. In Grey County, Grey Roots Museum and Archives near Owen Sound has great indoor exhibits and fun programming for all ages. In Simcoe County, The Simcoe County Museum has rich exhibits indoors and outdoors including historic outbuildings and farm machinery. Be sure to check ahead for each museum’s winter operating hours.

In addition, several key historic sites are located in Simcoe County including Discovery Harbour in Penetanguishene – while the facility is not open in winter, it has a cool skating trail through the grounds (weather permitting).  Annually, Sainte-Marie among the Hurons in Midland celebrates the arrival of winter with its sparkling and magical First Light event held in late November/early December (returns in 2021), then closes for the winter.

Several smaller museums dot the region as well. Local information centres can help you find those open during the winter season.
