The Chimczuk Museum is fairly new to the Windsor Area. It is in a modern building and located on the Windsor Waterfront. They change exhibits and have activities on site. This is a good place for travellers to visit when they come to Windsor.

Super place to visit for kids and adults alike. We are not from Windsor, but moved here and wanted to learn more. So much indiginous history, the importance of this region for the Underground Railway, the effect of Prohibition, and so much more.

This museum offers not just an insight into some of Windsor's historic life but also offers a view of subjects and objects related to Windsor's industrial background. Combine visit with art gallery.
