We believe that:

  • Museums can profoundly change people.
  • Museums can unleash our natural curiosity, expand our awareness, and broaden our sense of place in the world.
  • Museums can connect people through shared experiences; they can build community, and help create meaning.

Help the Museum of Ontario Archaeology become a place where archaeology and First Nations history connects, where shared understanding and respect grows, and where meaning and community is created. Help the Museum of Ontario Archaeology become a place of inspiration and change.
