The Iron Pour
June 8, 2024 (11:00 PM - 6:00 PM)

Discover this new event in partnership with the Canadian Society for Contemporary Iron Arts (CSCIA).

Visitors will be able to speak with artists, watch demonstrations, and purchase a scratch block to make their own iron designs on site (limited quantities available). Enjoy free admission to the museum to view the amazing iron work of the 1859 Pumphouse engines and miniature train rides operated by volunteers from the Golden Horseshoe Live Steamers club.
