Arts & Museums
A group of Oshawa businessmen established the Canadian Automotive Museum in 1961, to promote the glorious history of the Canadian automobile industry. Spread across two stories, the top story is dedicated to showcasing Canadian made vehicles, while the lower floors exhibits international cars, with the oldest exhibit dating back to the late 19th Century. Visitors can view local makes like Galt Gas-Electric, Brooks Steam, Fischer Electric and more. The museum is located in car showroom from the 1920s, the architecture and interior decor stays in tune with the theme of the museum.
The Ontario Regiment (RCAC) Museum, located to the south of the Oshawa Municipal Airport, is deemed as a 'living museum' that showcases military artillery that was once used by the Canadian forces. A highlight of the museum is the Ontario Regiment Ferret Club, that was founded in 1980, and focuses on military vehicles. The collection includes trucks, jeeps, tanks and carriers. Visitors can peruse Sheridan tanks, Sherman Mark IV, M60, Chaffee and others. Majority of these are functional today and the remaining are being restored. They are mainly used in parades.
Named after its celebrated namesake artist, Doris McCarthy Gallery at the University of Toronto Scarborough is a lovely place to check out the contemporary works of Canadian and international artists. Their vast repertoire features at least 158 artisans and more than 1700 art works. The exhibits change regularly to showcase the various art forms.
