Brockville Museum features exhibits and artifacts related to Brockville's rich Loyalist history and the city's development as a waterfront community. Changing thematic displays and special events complement the permanent exhibits.

Located in the historic downtown core of Brockville, Ontario, the Brockville Museum features permanent and changing thematic and interactive exhibits which show that Brockville’s history is one of prominent manufacturers, formidable wealth, fascinating historical figures and vivacious ordinary people all interconnected by a dynamic river. It’s open year round, with features for children and adults that include educational programs, galleries, archives, and more. The continually changing exhibits mean there is always something new to discover at the Brockville Museum.

What You'll See

  • Exhibits feature the industrial, agricultural, and social history of Brockville, highlight the waterfront leisure activities over the years and various early industries including Stetson Hats, Briscoe Cars and Atlas Cars, all of which influenced the development of Brockville.
  • The Isaac Beecher House, part of the Museum, is a historical landmark. Bought by Isaac Beecher in 1824, who had arrived in the Brockville area from the United States, the Beecher House is a well-preserved example of a vernacular loyalist building.
