Explore Ontario’s Archaeology

Welcome to the Museum of Ontario Archaeology.  We are is dedicated to enriching the lives of Canadians through the creation and dissemination of knowledge about the archaeology of Ontario.

Archaeology brings the stories of how people lived to life. These stories connect us to our shared human heritage and give us a sense of place in the world. At the Museum of Ontario Archaeology (MOA), we believe that archaeology is (first and foremost) about people and that by connecting with and sharing our stories we understand and appreciate each other more.

Our programs are designed to make learning about archaeology fun for people of all ages. They’re great for field trips, birthday celebrations, and family outings.

  • Educational Programs for Teachers – put history in the hands of your students with access to artifacts, archaeological research and a full size Iroquoian long house
  • Kid’s Birthday Parties (Diggin’ Your Birthday) – a great way to make your child’s birthday celebration unique
  • Camps for Kids – learn about archaeology, First Nations, and Ontario history while making new friends and having lots of fun
  • Badge Completion Programs – easily meet the requirements of badges that coincide with the First Nations Heritage
