Welcome to the Museum of Ontario Archaeology. We are dedicated 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.
Reshaping the Stories we Tell
The Museum is currently planning new exhibits to enhance how we tell the story of archaeology in Ontario and share our collections with the community.
The first stage of planning – an interpretive master plan – is the basis for the design of the new exhibits. It establishes the framework for the story the museum will tell and provides a written description of each exhibit and what visitors will see and do during their visit.
Please note the Museum will not be offering tours until the Middlesex-London region is safely out of the Grey and Red zones, in compliance with Ontario’s protective measures. Stay tuned for more information on our pre-booked tours as circumstances change!
The museum will remain closed to general walk-up admissions and large groups as we actively monitor the COVID-19 situation in the Middlesex-London community and adjust our services as required. For your safety and comfort, we offer the following services:
- Pre-Booked tours (we require a 24-hour notice for all inquiries);
- Online pre-booking and touch-free payment;
- No more than 5 visitors at a time;
- Restroom facilities for visitors;
- Sanitation stations;
- Masked tour-guides are screened for COVID-19 symptoms daily.
When you book your tour, we will request some personal information for the purpose of contact-tracing, but that information will not be shared with anyone but health or other authorities in the event of a diagnosis.
We look forward to your visit!
