Anne Frank House exhibit returning to Stratford Perth Museum

Popular exhibAFH house panel 1it back for six weeks beginning December 18.  The Anne Frank House exhibit, which broke Canadian attendance records at the Stratford Perth Museum this summer, is back for a limited time. Anne Frank: A History for Today was mounted in conjunction with the Stratford Festival and its presentation of The Diary of Anne Frank play. The exhibit’s last day at the Stratford Perth Museum was Oct. 12, but through a series of circumstances it has become available for a second showing. The exhibit will open Saturday, December 18 and will be on display at the Stratford Perth Museum until January 31. “We were very fortunate to be able to have this exhibit for the summer,” said John Kastner, Stratford Perth Museum general manager. “When it became possible for us to have it again for another six weeks we were very grateful for this rare opportunity.” Over 12,000 patrons saw the exhibit this summer at the museum and the popularity of the display was a major reason to have a second showing. “Not a day goes by that someone doesn’t call to see if the exhibit is still here or ask if it’s ever coming back,” said Kayla Droog, the museum’s Manager of Education and Public Programs. “When we had the chance to display the exhibit again it was an easy decision.” The suspension of extra curricular activities this fall meant there were many school trip cancellations. This second showing will provide another chance for school groups and individuals to see the travelling exhibit. Museum’s winter hours are 10-4 daily and 12-4 on Sundays and holidays including Boxing Day. Tickets are available at the door or online.
