With pandemic restriction easing, families have many more in-person options for March Break activities thanks to the City of Windsor’s recreation and culture department.

Saturday kicked off a week’s worth of themed craft fun at the Chimczuk Museum.

A different theme — everything from exotic animals to Victorian England — is planned each day.

In addition, participants can travel through time with a scavenger hunt and receive a prize if the quest is completed.

Temporary exhibits currently on display at the museum include Bustles & Bows: Women’s Fashion from the Victorian Era to the 1920s and Navigating Our Way: Maps of Windsor & Essex County.

The Chimczuk Museum is open daily, except Monday, from 10 am to 5 pm, at 401 Riverside Dr. W. Admission is $5.50, $16.60 for the family rate.
