Behind the Scenes by Izzy Merritt…

Hello everyone!

My name is Izzy Merritt and this is my first summer working with the Mattawa museum!

We’ve been working on plenty of fun projects, including an escape room (watch out for our announcement about that!) and a scavenger hunt you can do in the museum! 

I’ve had plenty of fun working here and have already learned so much about Mattawa and our history!

One of the fun mini-projects I worked on was a small guessing game!

A nice lady brought us a couple of bags full of plastic bread tags that she found at a yard sale! I took it upon myself to count them all out and put them in a jar for people to guess the amount there was… How many do you think there are?

Send your answer to Use subject line # of bread tags.

The museum is currently collecting the new cardboard bread tags, we’re open to taking them between 10:00-4:30! Please feel free to stop by if you have any!

It’s been interesting to see Marcelle and his grandson Alex building the canoe just outside the museum. We’ve also been planning the canoe launch event which will be on August 27th, 2022!

I’m very excited to see what projects we work on in the future!
