The Halton Region Museum is excited to present a special exhibit, Flights of Folly: Learning from the Passenger Pigeon. This exhibit explores the history of the Passenger Pigeon and showcases how a species that once numbered in the billions could become extinct within a matter of decades. Guests will have an opportunity to see a rare Passenger Pigeon specimen, try roosting in a human-sized nest or snag a pair of binoculars and try to spot one of the many bird species that call Halton home today.
