Museum Opening and Canton Culture Week

Kick off the Canton Acts of Culture Week 2016 with the reopening of the Canton Historical Museum! We are opening for the season today, Saturday, April 30!

Over the last 30 years, Canton has shifted from a primarily agricultural town to a place filled with new homes and businesses. But how well do you know your neighbor? We all come from different cultural and religious backgrounds, and too often don’t recognize the great diversity that surrounds us.

Visiting the museum this summer will introduce you to some of the cultures that have come to grow in Canton. Facts and objects from Brazil (Bahia), Palestine, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, and the Muslim community take center stage to help preserve Canton’s “recent history.”

The exhibit runs until July 30, 2016. Admission is free but donations are appreciated.
