    Saturday March 07, 2015 - 10:00 am — TheMuseum - Kitchener
    Come experience the world as it was millions of years ago. Dinosaurs | The Edge of Extinction uncovers a century of research about both Triceratops and Tyrannosaurus Rex – two of the most well-known dinosaurs – and how they lived until the Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction. It will reveal the interdependence between the species, their environment, and the forces that shaped both their life and extinction. Through new, technology-based interactive stations you will get to see the world through the eyes of different dinosaurs, learn how a Pterosaur flies, and walk among these giants. Meet THEMUSEUM’s dinosaur family and interact with an infant Triceratops and T-Rex, and have your bravery tested when you take part in a newly developed program that allows you to come face to face with a walking, roaring dinosaur.

    Sunday July 12, 2015 - 13:00 pm — Waterloo Region Museum / Doon Heritage Village - Kitchener
    Join us Sunday afternoons in July and August as we play host to a local artist or group who will entertain visitors with music and song. This week's featured artist is Hunters Corners. Hunter’s Corners was the 19th Century name for the intersection of what is now HWY 8 and 24 in Cambridge, ON. It was so-called because there was an inn there at that time called The Royal Oak which was owned by a man named Hunter. The duo of Bill Nesbitt (concertina, harmonica, vocals & jaw harp and Brad McEwen (citterns & vocals) chose this name because of its local connection. As well as being a musician for Oakville Ale & Sword Dancers, Bill specializes in traditional songs and tunes from Newfoundland. Brad has spent many years with the traditional folk music of the British Isles and has most recently focused on both Canadian variants of British Isles ballads and songs from Canadian history. Join us for a look in the galleries, a visit to the village and enjoy an afternoon of music on the patio.
