Pre-Booked Tours

Pre-booked, socially distanced guided tours are currently on hold as the province is only in Step 1 of its reopening plan and we are currently closed to the public. We anticipate opening for pre-booked tours in Step 3 of Ontario’s new Re-Opening plan.

Remote programming is still available! Contact if you’re interested.

The Museum of Ontario Archaeology welcomes you back for guided tours of our galleries and the Lawson archaeological site. For the health and safety of our visitors, collections, volunteers, and staff, you will find some changes.

We actively monitor the COVID-19 situation in the Middlesex-London community, and these services may change at any time. Currently, the MOA:

  • Is open by appointment only, with a limited capacity of 5 visitors per group, to allow for physical distancing;
  • Surfaces and contact points are cleaned regularly, as well as before and after each visit;
  • Interactive exhibits and elements are removed or covered;
  • Washrooms are restricted to visitors only. They are regularly disinfected, and open to one family at a time, with accessible washrooms and ramp by request;
  • Hand Sanitizer and washrooms for hand washing are available to visitors in the Museum facilities;
  • All Museum staff and volunteers wear face coverings;
  • We are continuing online and remote programming to keep you engaged with Ontario’s archaeological heritage however and wherever you are comfortable doing so!
