Education at the Museum of Ontario Archaeology puts history directly in the hands of your students. A school field trip to the museum brings the past to life through our unique and experiential programs. With access to almost two million artifacts and over a century of archaeological research, your students will enjoy a truly immersive learning environment while exploring over 13,000 years of human heritage in Ontario.

Our education programming is continuously been updated to better reflect the Ontario curriculum with specific focus on social studies, science and technology and mathematics. We provide many experiential and hands-on opportunities exploring archaeology and Ontario’s past.
