Welcome to the Museum of Ontario Archaeology!

Discover the history of archaeology and rich heritage of Southwestern Ontario. Featuring over 12,000 years of Ontario’s history, the Museum also cares for the Canadian heritage Site of the Lawson Village adjacent to the Museum. Visit us to learn about the human experience in Ontario, and life in the Lawson village from 500 years ago.

As of July 19th, 2021, we are once again offering our pre-booked,
socially distanced guided tours!

General Tour

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.

Find out how to book your tour!

We look forward to your visit!


Family Field Trip!

We are currently offering a basic gallery and village tour, plus a workshop for families of up to 10 people for $50.

Length: 1.5-hour – Suitable for all ages (we alter accordingly for the age of the children in the group).
Cost: $50 for a group of up to 10 people (available weekdays at 10 AM, 1 PM, and 3 PM respectively).*

*Half rate available for groups of 5 or less.

Workshop options:

  • Pottery making
  • Longhouse diorama making,
  • Maize, beans, and squash drawing activity/bean planting.

Materials for these workshops will be laid out in advance and not shared during the workshop. Our classroom can hold 30 people in normal operations and we can therefore maintain social distancing within the workshop area for 1-4 family groups if combining.

Pre-booking required.
