From Far and Wide: Tales from a Suitcase

July 1, 2017 to September 16, 2018 at Erchless Estate

Using the museum’s suitcase and costume collection, as well as archival documentation, this exhibit shares stories of immigration from over 150 years as a collective history of becoming Canadian.

The people who came to make Oakville their home brought their unique skills, energy and vision and have contributed to the development of the community.
This exhibit explores a small number of Oakville immigration stories from the first fifty years after Canadian Confederation in 1867.

Hats from the Speir’s collection and the Museum’s permanent collection showcase the beauty, workmanship and history of millinery as both a craft and form of expression. This exhibit offers an exciting view into the fashionable lives of Ontario women in the twentieth century.
