The City of Windsor and the surrounding Essex County has an incredibly rich history and has played a pivotal role in many important developments in Canada and North America over the last centuries. This heritage has been interpreted for many years in a small Historic Site at François Baby House and is now expanding into 401 Riverside Drive in downtown Windsor. The renovation and expansion project allows a greater story of Windsor to be told – from pre history to the present day – about its physical and cultural formation. Not only will more collections be on display but there will be a greater focus on the human stories. The new Museum is also to be the “hub” in a “hub and spoke” system that recognizes existing cultural and natural heritage sites in Windsor and Essex County. The project was realized with a team of city and museum staff, as well as a multidisciplinary consultant team.
