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 will pay a $5.00 participation fee, for participants 12 and up. Free for participants under the age of 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! Join professional potters Chris Snedden and Gene Timpany, and historic re-creator Kim Lundberg as they guide you through the process of collecting and preparing your own natural clay through to your unique pottery creation. This year we are also very excited to welcome back, renown Wyandot Artisan Richard Zane Smith, who will be providing tips and tricks on how to fire your creations using traditional methods as well as a Q&A.

This year our course has been designed to be delivered through a hybrid model with participants on site as well as online. All participants will have access to exclusive video demonstrations and one-on-one support from instructors who will guide you through an introduction to earthenware, a regional history of pottery making, collecting your own natural clay, and getting to experiment by creating your own pot with us!

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!

Please note for virtual participants; an internet connection is required for the course and you will be responsible for finding, collecting, and preparing your own clay. Local participants are invited to fire their creations in a pit-firing on site at the MOA.

Do you have activities for Sept 30th. Would I be able to book a tour of the long house that afternoon for 5 people? Thanks.
