Last year I spent some time blogging about the Bruce County Museum and Cultural Centre in Southampton. At that time there was an amazing dinosaur exhibit. This year, when we once again found ourselves back at the cottage, we wondered how they might top last year’s animatronic dinos and BBC film. Well, somehow they did it with prehistoric sea monsters larger than life. (See Payton below.)
If you are still heading for the beach between now and September 6th, when the exhibit ends, you should find a way to visit this one.
It was well worth it and more than a bit scary. There is an excellent documentary recreation of prehistoric sea life in the theatre. Try to take the tour of fairy lake and take pictures, not souvenirs. The price is more than most are worth, but admission is reasonable and the adventure is educational. The Bruce County Museum and Cultural Centre is located at 33 Victoria Street North in Southampton, On. It’s only half an hour from Sauble Beach and Port Elgin.
Bruce County Museum Hours are: Mon. to Sat. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Sundays and Holidays: 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Admission: Adult: $8.00, Seniors and Students are $6. Children under 12 are $4. Three and under free.

Wonder what they’ll come up with next year??!!
