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.


As of March 21st, the Museum of Ontario Archaeology will continue to maintain its masking policy. We require that visitors (ages 2 and up) wear their masks at all times while inside the museum.


Upcoming Events

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!

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 will pay a $2.00 participation fee.

Registration link coming soon!
