Get ready for an exciting summer in Windsor. The Windsor Museum located near Windsor Lake at Boardwalk Park in Windsor is getting upgraded. The Town of Windsor is restoring some of Windsor's history. You will see some of the old photos and pieces of Windsor's history, but the museum is adding some new items for this new season.

The work on the museum and the caboose that sits behind the 1882 depot at Boardwalk Park started one year ago. According to an article the caboose has been restored to it's original appearance and the Town of Windsor is adding some fun events for the summer.

“We have some really interesting resources at our disposal,” Knight said. “We have some incredible collections and stories that warrant telling. We have a collection of over 25,000 objects that are not always on display. We have to share their importance with the community. We’re able to do that through educational programming that we offer in the schools. We’re able to do that through exhibits that we host not just at Boardwalk Park, but also at the Art & Heritage Center and at the Community Recreation Center.”

Look for upcoming events in Windsor like Historic Field Games, Old Time Baseball and even Square Dancing. The Windsor Museum is now open and is free to visit. It's open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, through September 1. To find out more about upcoming events, you can visit the town's website. You can also take an audio cell phone tour of the museum that can be accessed by cell phone or online.
