The Thunder Bay Museum is proud to announce a new collaborative initiative with Lakehead University’s Department of History to bring free, live webinars.
Hump Day History is intended to get you over the mid-week hurdle with a little bit about our region’s past. Every Wednesday evening at 7:00 PM EST (unless otherwise noted) for the months of April and May, the Thunder Bay Museum will be bringing you live broadcasts from local historians, as well as behind the scenes look at the museum’s collections.
These free live and interactive webinars will be moderated by Dr. Michel S. Beaulieu, Professor of History at Lakehead University, and Scott Bradley, the Thunder Bay Historical Museum Society’s Executive Director.
