Canoe Museum damaged during wind storm

Canoe Museum damaged during wind storm
CANADIAN CANOE MUSEUM — Emergency repairs are currently underway after the Canadian Canoe Museum in Peterborough, Ont. was damaged in the May 21 storm.

PETERBOROUGH, ONT. — The Canadian Canoe Museum in Peterborough, Ont. will be closed until June 4 after suffering significant damage in the May 21 storm.

Violent winds tore signage siding off the building, blew out windows in the building’s Collection Centre and downed trees at both the museum’s current location and the new museum site, stated a release.

The main building’s roof bore the brunt of the damage with the wind lifting up the membrane and tearing it apart. This led to rain and moisture entering the galleries, causing water damage.

No staff or visitors were injured and the collection was undamaged. Emergency repairs should enable the museum to re-open June 4.
