Experience the long and proud history of Bruce County beginning in the newly updated Anishnaabwe Endaat gallery, through pioneer times to present day.  Journey through thousands of years of natural and human history; come face-to-face with a baby mammoth, meet the shopkeeper while exploring Bevan's General Store, or play in our technology lab.  Explore the rich marine history of Bruce County's lighthouses, shipwrecks and fishing industry; board the HMS General Hunter, an 1812 battleship replica, where an exciting virtual experience awaits as you shoot the cannon to defeat the enemy.  Step into the trenches of WWI and follow the life of a Bruce County soldier through the war.  Discover all this and more!

"Painting the Ontario Landscape" This art exhibition features paintings by the late Jane Champagne, long-time resident of Southampton. Jane was a force of nature, Gaia personified! A fierce advocate for the soul's expression, she found her Source in the spirit of the land, and found in the land, her spiritual home. Her voice, in the written word, and her brush, birthing colour into form, were her tools for calling us to preserve the land, and for calling us to express our own soulfulness, the gift of Spirit that we all share.  This exhibit celebrates Jane’s spirit, creativity and love of the land, open until April 30, 2019.  

The Museum offers adult and children's programming and special events, and is home to the Bruce County Archives & Research Room. One visit will have you buying a membership!  You can also use your membership for free admission at 4 additional Museums including: Grey Roots Museum & Archives, Waterloo Region Museum & Archives, Huron County Museum and Simcoe County Museum!
