Come visit the Bradley Museum during March Break to enjoy Mississauga's annual maple syrup season and Mississauga's own maple syrup festival - Maple Magic! Ever wonder how maple syrup gets from the forest to your breakfast table?
From March 10th to the 18th, and new this year an additional weekend - March 24th and March 25th, 2012, you can come to experience the magic of Maple time! Enjoy horse-drawn wagon rides, as well as pancakes served daily in our Log Cabin, guided tours, kids' crafts, free samples and more. Visit the Sweet Water Camp, a recreated First Nations' campsite where you can learn about the lore and legends surrounding the first discovery of this marvellous sugar water that oozes out of maple trees. Oversized outdoor board games will provide lots of fun for your family. On the weekends soar up into the air in a Forestry Division bucket truck - all this in addition to learning about maple syrup production past and present.
Maple Magic - Saturday and Sunday weekend hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., March 10th, 11th, 17th, 18th, 24th and 25th. Monday to Friday weekday hours are 12 to 4 p.m., March 12th to 16th.
We will offer a special theme each weekday. Monday March 12th is "Grandparents' Day" so bring your grandkids out for an afternoon of fun.

Tuesday March 13th we will be celebrating ‘Earth Day' early, Wednesday March 14th join us for ‘Tell me a Story' with local authors and actors on site reliving a simpler time and local folklore'. Thursday March 15th features ‘Canadian Eh! as we celebrate Canada, and to end the weekday celebrations, Friday March 16th, bring your favourite Teddy and join us as we have activities for young and old Teddies throughout the site.
