    THEMUSEUM in downtown Kitchener is hoping to expand and could be in line for help from the city of Kitchener.

    City staff is recommending a proposal to front the Museum $3 million to buy the neighbouring BMO building on the corner of King Street and Queen Street in Kitchener.

    THEMUSEUM has plans to use the space to add new programing and more teaching space.

    If approved, THEMUSEUM says they will knock down the old bank and create something new.

    “Ultimately we’ll come out with a plan to raze that building, take it down, connect it to our building, and bring something really cool architecturally to the concern of King and Queen Street,” said David Marksell, CEO of THEMUSEUM.

    If the city buys the property THEMUSEUM will have ten years fundraise the money for their expansion plan.

    For the first time in 20 years, live theatre is back at the TELUS World of Science’s Zeidler Dome.

    Girl in the Machine explores digital dependency and human relationships with the help of a 360-degree visual experience. The Dome’s digital visualization theatre features 10K resolution.

    “It’s a dystopian drama that focuses on a couple and what happens to them when a mysterious black box enters their house,” explained artistic producer and director Brenley Charkow. “[The dome] was the perfect space. The audience can experience exactly what the character is feeling.”

    When you think about the future, what do you imagine life might be like in Canada? What will our homes be like…and what technologies will make our daily lives easier? Will we all travel by flying cars, and could they take us to other planets? Will our food look the same?

    In the spirit of playfulness and creativity, the Canada Science and Technology Museum invites Ingenium members to “Imagine the Future.” Participants are invited to use their personal LEGO® bricks to create their own vision for Canada's future — however they may want to interpret that. Submissions should be built ahead of time and brought to the Museum for consideration in the contest.

    The Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum is going to have an escape room exhibit opening in September, to help bring in more visitors and offer a fun, interactive way to learn.

    Executive Director of the museum, Linden Roberts, says they’ve been looking at different and unique ways to produce exhibits, and still convey content. She says escape rooms are very popular, and they reached out to Dr. Scott Nicholson, a Professor of Game Design at Wilfred Laurier University, who has been an advocate for the use of escape rooms in museums.

    Ovintiv, formerly known as Encana, has invested $40,000 in the museum, to help create the new attraction, and hire Nicholson to help develop the escape room exhibit.

    Interpretation of Field is a collaborative project housed at Faculty of Information, the University of Toronto, designed to document and share current practices of interpretation professionals in four types of museums. Our main data-collecting tool is a survey, which we developed to take the pulse of contemporary practices in museum interpretation and to map out tools, strategies and knowledge used by practitioners. This research is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, Canada’s federal research funding agency. 

    If you are an interpretation professional working in an art museum/centre, an encyclopedic/general (multi-disciplinary) museum, a natural history/anthropology museum, or a science/technology museum/centre, we invite you to take our survey between Jan. 2 and March 1, 2020.

    Results will be available on the project’s website in Summer 2020.

    To complete the survey, visit:
