The Park House Museum is well regarded by museums around the globe for its quality tinware, forged by committed volunteers who keep this centuries old trade alive. When you enter The Park House you are greeted by the shiny creations, which include handcrafted cookie cutters, candle holders, graters, Christmas ornaments, and the most beautiful tin lanterns! This museum and its volunteers do a fabulous job mixing the historical value of period pieces with relevant, pop-culture inspired designs. Be sure to check out the ‘muggle’!
The Museum is home to a meticulously kept tinware workshop, outfitted with original tools of the trade. By booking in advance you can arrange a tour or hands-on visitor experience in the tin shop!
It isn’t uncommon for movie production companies to request period tinware pieces for a set or two. In fact, the series ‘Alias Grace’ (written by the famous author Margaret Atwood) featured The Park House’s tinware throughout the production. If you had a glimpse of a washboard or tin cup in the series, you can be sure it was lovingly crafted here in Amherstburg!
