“Joseph Brant: the Man and the Museum"

Learn about the unique life of a well-known local historic figure, Joseph Brant: from his early childhood in a longhouse to retirement at the Head-of-the-Lake in Burlington. We will be given a virtual tour of the Joseph Brant Transformation Project: the building relocation and museum expansion scheduled for completion in 2019 (for more info visit the website). Some artefacts from the museum's collection will be on display.
