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 displays the Brockville Museum shares the stories of the people who have shaped this riverfront community for over 200 years. We recommend setting aside an hour to explore our fully-accessible galleries.
For questions about current museum protocols, please call the museum: 613-342-4397.
From the City of Brockville:
Aligned with the Province of Ontario’s lifting of most COVID-19 public health restrictions, the City of Brockville has removed the mandatory masking at all indoor municipal facilities effective March 21, 2022. Visitors to public spaces within City facilities will not be required to wear a mask but may do so. This includes the City Hall, Brockville Arts Centre, Brockville Museum, Memorial Centre, and Gord Watts Municipal Centre.
While COVID-19 operational health measures/restrictions are lifted in City facilities, users are kindly asked to continue to follow precautionary protocols such as:
- staying home when sick
- self-monitoring for symptoms and masking if you have been exposed to a close contact
- use hand sanitizer provided at facility entrances
- sneezing/coughing into your sleeve
- avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth
- frequent handwashing/disinfection and
- staying away from those that are sick
While masking will no longer be a requirement within the facilities, patrons who wish to wear a mask while in the facilities are encouraged to do so. We ask everyone to be respectful, kind and courteous to those who have chosen to wear a mask.
