Forge Days at the Threshermen's Museum 0
New events like "Blacksmith Forge Days" are being aimed at attracting more summer-long interest in the Pembina Threshermen's Museum.
The Forge Days were introduced June 26 at the pioneer museum east of Morden on Highway 3 and continue July 21, August 16 and September 18 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
You can see the museum blacksmith working the coal forge and anvil, while sharing some 'tricks of the trade', and then don't forget to pick up your small gift from the blacksmith before you leave.
While there, the kids can get barrel train rides, and the general store will be open while touring the museum grounds.
In addition, the Pembina Threshermen's Museum is working with the Pembina Hills Art Centre in Morden to hold three artist days when local artists will be encouraged to come and "paint the past".
If you just want to check out the variety of heritage buildings that make up the threshermen's museum, new this year are orientation booklets available around Morden and Winkler in the waiting rooms of several local businesses and available to buy at the museum office.
And there is a new addition to the Pembina Threshermen's Museum this year! The Haskett Store has found a home in the village and is currently under restoration. Watch for it to open to the public in the near future!
There are other fun additions to the museum this year as well, so make visiting it a part of your family summer plans!
For more family fun this summer, drop by the museum office to get your Pembina Valley Passport stamped and pick up a copy of the fun new Threshermen's Museum Activity Book for the kids!
Have a little spare time and and enjoy tractors, carpentry, fixing things, dressing up or helping out? The museum is also looking for a few 'extra hands' to help in keeping our heritage alive.
And the highlight of the season will again be the Reunion Days, which will be held Friday and Saturday August 31 and September 1.
