'Unmasking Influenza' exhibition will be visiting the Grimsby Museum from Ingenium — Canada’s Museums of Science and Innovation.

 

The world’s deadliest influenza pandemic — known as the Spanish Flu — swept across Canada between 1918 and 1919. With no effective vaccine or treatment available, the virus infected Canadians living in cities, towns, and farms. Approximately 55,000 Canadians died; most of the casualties were young adults. This new display examines the lasting impact of the influenza pandemic in Canada — and asks whether we’re prepared for the next one. The display was developed by Canadian Geographic Enterprises, in collaboration with the Museum of Health Care at Kingston.

 

This project has been made possible [in part] by the Government of Canada.

Ce projet a été rendu possible [en partie] grâce au gouvernement du Canada.

Grimsby Spirit Exhibition (February 11th to Spring 2022)

February 11th - 2022 (end date to be announced)
Admission by donation

Civic pride is a building block that often is overlooked for its role in shaping municipalities.  As a symbol of identity, civic pride is part of what defines and shapes cities.  Civic pride has both shaped and been shaped by a belief that cities create unique communities where people share a sense of identity and common purpose.  From ancient cities to modern cities, civic pride has represented a goal of local government. Civic pride is also connected with a history of rivalry and competition between places.  This exhibition will look at the Civic Pride that Grimsby has shown over the years though photographs, trophies, parades and events. Communities are formed when a group of people share a sense of identity and common purpose.
