Welcome!

Welcome to the Museum of Ontario Archaeology. We are dedicated to connecting people to the stories of the human experience through time and place. It is our mission to share, interpret, and care for the archaeological record to advance an understanding of Ontario’s Heritage.


Upcoming Events

The Museum of Ontario Archaeology is excited to announce our 2nd annual Heritage Scavenger Hunt!
Looking for something to do this summer? Why not get outdoors and explore London’s rich Heritage and Archeological sites! This event will run from August 26 to September 5th. Participants will take part in an outdoor adventure around London exploring 10 archeological heritage sites. At each location, they’ll complete missions to learn more about the significance of the site. 

To join the adventure, registrants 12 and up will pay a $5.00 participation fee. Registration is free for participants under 12.

With the success of our virtual Natural Clay Pottery Course last year, the MOA is excited to announce our partnership with FUSION: The Ontario Clay and Glass Association and The London Clay Art Centre to offer this course again!
Thanks to our hybrid delivery option, this course is available to anyone who has an interest in learning more about creating natural clay pottery, regardless of location! Last year we had many virtual participants from across Canada, the United States, and even overseas!


We are excited to announce that we will be going ahead with in-person on-site summer day camp!
Our camps will be available for campers ages 8 to 12 (must be turning 8 by the end of the year). This year, we will not be offering registration for single days, only by the week.

Camp will run from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM each day. Drop off for camp will be 8:45am-9:00am with camp starting at 9:00 and the pick-up time will be from 4:00pm-4:15pm.

Enrolment is limited, so make sure to register early!

Please see below for camp themes, dates, and pricing!
