Join us for a series of bite-sized conversations inspired by current exhibitions and stories from the collection.
This History Bites session featuring a deep dive into the collection vaults. We’ll be looking into the museum’s collection of cookbooks and cooking tools. From Second World War rationing to a Covid Community Cookbook, and all the happier times in between, this session will tell you the story of Guelph through the food we eat.
History Bites is a free online event. To take part in the conversation from the comfort of home, watch the live stream on Guelph Museums Facebook Live.
Alternately, watch the live stream through the Museum Everywhere Portal and check out videos from recent online events.
