WE ARE WHAT WE EAT – For Kids!

Biscuits and Ice Cream

We’ve decided to design a couple of We Are What We Eat sessions for the kids. The adults can’t have all the fun … and yummy eats!

To register for one or both of these sessions, please drop by the Museum, contact us by phone at (807)467-2105 or email museum@kmts.ca. Payment is required at the time of registration.

VICTORIAN BISCUITS and BUTTER

RAT PORTAGE ICE CREAM SOCIAL
Saturday, August 18
Learn about the tradition of ice harvesting on the lake and how people in old Rat Portage knew that you don’t need a freezer to make yummy ice cream! Learn how to make ice cream in the traditional Victorian way. This program will be led by Museum Educator Braden Murray (an expert ice cream maker!)

There were 6 prisoner-of-war camps on Lake of the Woods during World War II. The lumber camps housed German prisoners who were set to work out in the bush cutting timber. The Museum has several boat models built by the prisoners at those camps.
