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 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. Virtual delivery is also an option.

Included is a list of our most popular programs.  Programs on other topics of general interest are also possible.
