Current and Upcoming Exhibits

Life in Kenora during World War 1
1914-1918
An exhibit in partnership with the Kenora Great War Project
June 29 – September 1

The summer of 2018 will see the Lake of the Woods Museum once again dive into the deep topic of the First World War. This is the second exhibit of the Kenora Great War Project, and the bookend exhibit to 2014’s Husbands, Sons, and Sweethearts: The Kenora Great War Project. While the 2014 exhibit was a “bullets-and-bombs” type exhibit that looked at Kenora’s soldiers’ experience at the front, The Homefront: Kenora and the Great War will concentrate on how the war impacted people locally and how people dealt with what was at the time the greatest ware in human history.
