Museum Windsor’s new 2018 display, Diecast From the Past: A History of Autos explores the history of diecast model cars, Windsor Ontario’s automotive history, and the relationship popular culture has with the automobile. Many women and men experience a lifelong passion for automobiles that often starts at a very young age. Prior to being able to drive or own a real car or truck, children often play with miniature versions of their favourite vehicles on living room floors, in sandboxes, schoolyards, etc. Explore this unique display at the Chimczuk Museum this year.​

New Exhibit! Material Culture: The Things We Make To Live

Location: Chimczuk Museum
Date: February 17 - September 9, 2018
Time: Regular Museum Hours
Admission: Regular Admission Rates Apply

A.G. Smith's Material Culture Project is based on the concept that human need and available material combine to create forms that are inherently iconic. Over the last several years, he has constructed a series of models closely replicating shelters, transport, and artifacts of Northern Europe, Asia, and North America. Believing that knowledge is cumulative, much of the culture of a people can be​ known through their material artifacts.   

This exhibition includes A.G. Smith's models, as well as selected pieces from the Museum's collection.
