Chimczuk Museum

Top choice in Southwestern Ontario

Sharing the building with the Art Gallery of Windsor, this remarkable museum unfolds the region's history in an inclusive and in-depth way, integrating First Nations and Métis heritage and culture; Black history and contributions in Windsor; and the experience of present-day immigrants. Exhibits are multimedia and have lots of hands-on elements (even a makers space!) so everyone stays engaged.
