Join us for Hump Day History as our Executive Director, Mr. Scott Bradley talks about hazardous artifacts that can be found in museum collections the world over. Explosives, toxins, radiation, poisons, and even hats are some of the very real threats museum professionals face everyday. Mr. Bradley will share some details on what to look for to stay safe as well as some stories of some close calls from his career.

Hump Day History is intended to get you over the mid-week hurdle with a little bit about our region’s past. Every Wednesday evening at 7 p.m. for the months of April, May, and June the Thunder Bay Museum and Lakehead University's Department of History will be bringing you live broadcasts from local historians, as well as behind the scenes look at the museum’s collections.

These free live and interactive webinars will be moderated by Dr. Michel S. Beaulieu, Professor of History at Lakehead University, and Scott Bradley, the Thunder Bay Historical Museum Society’s Executive Director.
