Starting July 6, the Whitchurch-Stouffville Museum & Community Centre will have free general admission the rest of the year. The initiative, which aims to expand the opportunities for everyone to enjoy the town’s history and heritage, allows visitors to engage in free tours and exhibitions.
“Free general admission to the museum allows everyone to enjoy the exhibits, resources and the beautiful facility,” Stouffville Mayor Iain Lovatt said. “It ensures equity in programming, fair access to resources and equitable opportunities for participation for underserved and under-represented groups.”
General admission fees will be waived from July 6 until Dec. 31, 2022. Some exhibitions and events may carry an additional charge.
“We are thrilled to offer free general admission to the museum, helping to remove barriers for families,” Krista Rauchenstein, museum curator/supervisor, said. “The Whitchurch-Stouffville Museum offers access to local heritage through activities, general tours, exhibition and more. We welcome new and returning visitors and look forwarded to seeing everyone this summer.”
In addition to this initiative, the Lebovic Centre for Arts and Entertainment --- Nineteen on the Park is revising its box office hours to shift focus to online ticket sales to allow residents and visitors to buy tickets anytime.
Starting next week, the box office will now be open Saturdays 12 to 4 p.m. and during event days. Tickets are available 24-7 online at 19onthepark.ca.
