The Quinte Museum of Natural History, the City of Quinte West, the Quinte West Chamber of Commerce and Research Casting International (RCI) held a ribbon-cutting ceremony on June 30, 2022, to celebrate the grand opening of the Quinte Museum of Natural History. Located in the Morton-Parker building at 99 Dufferin Avenue, Trenton, Ontario the official opening of the exhibits kicks off the start to the busy summer season.
“On behalf of the board of the Quinte Museum of Natural History I am thrilled at the response to this exhibit from the families that have already visited,” states board chair Suzanne Andrews. “Research Castings International builds exhibits for some of the best museums in the world and this quality can be seen in the exhibits currently on display in Quinte West.”
The Quinte Museum of Natural History is made possible through the combined efforts of both private donors and government funding to date that includes the City of Quinte West, Research Casting International, Wilkinson & Company LLP, the TAKLA Foundation and Trenval Business Development Corporation.
The Quinte Museum of Natural History features approximately 5,000 square feet of exhibit space that offers residents and visitors of the Bay of Quinte the opportunity to discover, explore, and learn about the world’s natural history. The Quinte Museum is currently exhibiting four larger-than-life types of dinosaurs — Theropods, Sauropods, Ceratopsians and Ankylosaurians.
