The Sifton-Cook Heritage Centre opens to the public on the May long weekend and closes on Thanksgiving weekend with reduced hours after Labour day.

sifton cook july 2021In 2022, the main Exhibit Hall featured the same exhibits as 2021, that is: "The Heinous, the Heroic & the High Flyers". Here, in story panels, artifacts and a video, visitors met a selection of nine fascinating historic figures with close associations to Cobourg and Northumberland County. Among others they found a murderer and the "funniest women in the world". Curators of the exhibit have dubbed it "Northumberland's Mad Hatter's Tea Party"!

In the East end of the Exhibit Hall there is a new installation showing the Cobourg & Peterborough Railway in miniature. George Parker, who had already created the outdoor operating railway, has expanded his indoor display.  It's a recreation of the Cobourg and Peterborough Railway, showing fine details of its Rice Lake Bridge and the attempts made to turn the bridge into a causeway. This exhibit is a work of art in itself.

All are invited but masks are recommended to enter the Heritage Centre property and social distancing is required inside the building. 

Prepatations are underway for the 2023 Exhibit titled "Our Stories - Our Community" featuring stories of immigration to Northumberland.
We look forward to welcoming you! (Admission is FREE/donations appreciated)
