Welcome

Thanks for visiting our site. We hope you will come and vist our displays showcasing the rich agricultural history of Southern Ontario. Kids and adults alike will find the many artifacts and displays fascinating.

Inside, check out the life-size animals, sleigh and vehicles, blacksmith and barrel-making corners, and much, much more. Outside, the museum grounds are surrounded by beautiful Carolinian forest, with lots of room to run and explore. It's the perfect place for a family day.
