A visit to the Brockville Museum offers a glimpse into the social and industrial history of Ontario’s first incorporated town. Through a variety of thematic and interpretive exhibits, the Brockville Museum shares the stories of the people who have shaped this waterfront community for over 200 years. The museum is housed (partially) in a mid-19th century home on the Downtown Brockville Waterfront, adjacent to the Brock Trail. While you tour the galleries you will have the chance to explore Brockville’s history at your leisure. Exhibits focus on the themes: “Made in Brockville”, “The People of Brockville”, and “Brockville’s River & Rail Story”.
Although the galleries are currently closed to in-person visits due to COVID-19 restrictions, the museum offers a wide range of virtual content accessible through the Museum’s website and social media channels, including virtual exhibits, videos, downloadable activities, and more.
