Attraction details
Owner description: The newly rebranded Museum Windsor (previously Windsor's Community Museum) consists of the Francois Baby House at 254 Pitt St. W. and the Chimczuk Museum at 401 Riverside Drive W. Both present exhibitions on the history of Windsor, Ontario and area. While the Francois Baby House exhibitions highlight the French origins of this area, and the War of 1812 and the Battle of Windsor, the Chimczuk Museum features exhibitions detailing the whole history of Windsor and area from early geologic time through the present. The Chimczuk Museum site also features separate exhibitions on Indigenous peoples, a Hands-on-History room for children and temporary exhibitions.

“Great way to learn about local history”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

Although the museum is small, it packs a lot of local history into it. It is worthwhile to visit. The 1812 material has been done really well and is very interesting since it focuses on the local elements.

“Great 1812 exhibition”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

We really enjoyed this spot, and learning about its great importance in Canadian history. There's a great area for kids in the basement. It's tucked away between hotels and parking lots, but it's well worth seeking it out to spend an hour learning about the War of 1812, bootlegging and more. And it's free!

“A lovely Little place Than Needs Some Financial Friends”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012

This is a Museum in early stages of development. What it needs to enhance what it already ahs is some decnt financial support for a City intent on holding property taxes to Zero--it is a great idea and a good little museusm but it needs a City in Suppport.
