Guelph Museums is offering a safe and inviting way to bring Remembrance learning into classrooms, homeschools, and small group meetings with two new online education programs focusing on the First and Second World Wars.

Offered daily between Nov. 3 and 6 and Nov. 9 and 13, these programs are designed for junior and senior students, as well as for adult community groups.

John McCrae and the First World War traces the experience of Canadians during the First World War through an exploration of life in the trenches, study of artifacts and uniforms, and reflection on John McCrae’s poem, In Flanders Fields.

Marking the 75th anniversary of the Liberation of Europe, Guelph and Canada in the Second World War will guide groups through the worldwide conflict by sharing pictures, stories, and artifacts from Guelph Museums’ collection.

Each session combines pre-recorded vignettes filmed on-site at McCrae House, live instruction with a museum educator, and a “real time” question-and-answer period. For more information and program bookings, visit

On Remembrance Day, McCrae House will be open extended hours, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Guelph Civic Museum will be open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Time ticketed entry is required and can be booked in advance through Eventbrite or by calling 519-836-1221.
