Brockville Museum "History Talks"

Designed as 45 minute*, stand-alone interpretive programs, the Brockville Museum is pleased to offer our "history talks".  These illustrated talks are available to groups of any age or size.  Some include hands-on activities and all are designed to generate discussion.  A wide variety of interesting topics are available all focusing on our local history and the people and events that were involved. 

Programs are not only available on-site at the Brockville Museum, but are also available to service clubs, tour groups, and seniors’ homes at locations convenient to them.

Included is a list of our most popular programs.  Programs on other topics of general interest are possible as we are always looking for new ideas!

*Programs can be shortened (or lengthened) to best fit your itinerary
