The story of the settlement and historical development of Lennox & Addington County is highlighted in a number of themed exhibits displayed within the Museum & Archives. Artifacts from the textile, furniture, domestic arts, tools and equipment collections are showcased on a changing basis. Guest exhibitions are also presented, including three currently on display to commemorate Canada's 150th anniversary celebrations.
The Archives collects papers, records, photographs, oral history and other documentary sources that highlight the history of the County and its people. The records begin in the late 18th century and detail individuals, businesses and government organizations that contributed to our social and economic growth since that time. The Archives extensive collection - estimated at 10,000 items - receives new additions by donation on a regular basis. Check out some of the new and exciting items we have available.
A series of great monthly programs complement the exhibits. “Tuesday Night at the Museum” features lectures, music and drama for adult audiences. “Museum Kids” introduces children and the young at heart to the museum through hands-on programs. A number of special events happen regularly as well: find out what's up next.
