Masquerade party at the Museum this Sunday

Choose a mask and wear it well, so your true identity no one can tell!

The Oakville Museum invites the whole family to its Masquerade at the Museum party this Sunday, October 28 from 1 to 4 p.m. Bring your family disguised in your favourite Halloween costumes to an entertaining afternoon at the museum.

“Come discover how Halloween was celebrated in the past,” said Bill Nesbitt, museum supervisor. “Watch an old time magic lantern show, search the mansion for masquerade masks amongst our display of historical costumes, and make your own mask and vintage Halloween ornament.”

The story of Cinderella will be told using a magic lantern and hand-painted glass slides that project images onto a screen. Both the lantern and intricate glass slides belonged to a family who resided in Oakville approximately 100 years ago.

The event costs $5 per person and includes light refreshments.

The Oakville Museum at the Erchless Estate has long been a favourite spot for family Halloween activities. The museum is located at 8 Navy Street in Downtown Oakville, south of Lakeshore Road. For more information, please call 905-338-4400 or visit the Oakville Museum program and events page.
