WATERLOO REGION - A new exhibition called Going Places – Past, Present, Future will be on exhibit at the Ken Seiling Waterloo Region Museum from June 28, 2019 to January 5, 2020. Going Places: Past Present Future, a major regional exhibition mounted in celebration of the ION launch, showcases how the people of Waterloo Region have been actively ‘on the move’ by water, road, rail, and air. Featuring immersive experiences and artifacts that will surprise and delight, the exhibition transports visitors through time and into the future.

“Citizens are affected by transit every day, whether they realize it or not,” said Adèle Hempel, Manager/Curator of the Region of Waterloo Museums. “The evolution of transportation systems in Waterloo Region is closely linked to the growth of the region itself. Transportation systems – roads, railways, and public transit – were as important to local residents in the early 1800s as they are today.”

As the region has evolved, local modes of transportation have adapted and modernized to meet people’s needs. From canoes to hybrid cars, the Going Places exhibition explores the changes in travel experienced within the Region. 

This exhibition has been created by the Region of Waterloo Museums’ exhibits team with the assistance of numerous partners and local contributors. The Ken Seiling Waterloo Region Museum is located at 10 Huron Road, in Kitchener, Ontario. For more information visit www.waterlooregionmuseum.ca or call 519-748-1914.
