Moonlight & Mayhem Tickets

Tickets to WHAM’s Moonlight & Mayhem III went on sale at 10:00 a.m. this morning. Barely 15 minutes later, the first two tickets were snapped up by an eager history buff. According to Vonnie, she missed out on tickets to our haunted walking tour of old Waterford last year; this year she was taking no chances!

If this lightning fast sale is any indication, tickets for this year’s event are sure to go quickly. Stop by our museum Tuesday-Friday between 10:00 a.m. & 4:30 p.m. or Sundays from 1-4:00 p.m. to purchase your tickets ($20 each) and reserve your spot for this unique Norfolk County experience.

Calligraphy for Beginners


Whether you’re a bride-to-be, a type-lover or you just want to learn a new creative skill, our Beginners Modern Calligraphy workshop is the perfect thing. We’ve teamed with the Hamilton Calligraphy guild to bring this artistic process to WHAM. First you’ll learn the basic exercises, working up to letter forms. By the end of the class you’ll put it all together to write phrases, as well as starting to develop your own lettering style.

Workshop Fee: $35. Pre-registration required – all supplies included.
