@ The Museum Thursday Night

The Niagara Falls History Museum is open free every Thursday night from 5pm – 9pm with a wide variety of programmes on offer. These programmes are free to attend unless otherwise noted.

The Poppy Project

The Poppy Project is a collaborative community art project by the Niagara Falls History Museum in conjunction with Stick'N Needles Guild. The Museum needs your help to create a large scale installation of knit and crochet poppies to drape over the exterior of the Museum for Remembrance Day. The public is asked to create these poppies at home or at the Museum at regularly scheduled events throughout 2020.

Members of the Stick’N Needles Guild will be on hand to help participants with the poppy patterns. Coffee, tea and yarn will be provided at these events, but please bring your own needles or hook if you have them.
