THEMUSEUM in downtown Kitchener is a unique cultural destination in our
community. Being described as a non - museum, there are no collections,
and museum programming is untraditional. THEMUSEUM's collection is one
of experience with dynamic interactive that keeps them fresh and not
predictable. The vision of THEMUSEUM is to awe, inspire and enlighten,
which is achieved by focusing on the audience experience. For more
