Welcome to the Museum of Ontario Archaeology. We are dedited to connecting people to the stories of the human experience through time and place. It is our mission to share, interpret, and re for the archaeologil 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.
