Exhibits at Joseph Brant

Physical preservation of our rich past is an essential part of retaining Burlington’s living history. It is through our collections program that we nurture the relics of our past to serve our community’s cultural growth for the future. We maintain and illustrate these links to Burlington’s past through our research and artifact acquisitions, conservation, exhibition and interpretation. To retain their historical and informational value, the artifacts are not only properly cared for but documented.

The Joseph Brant Museum is dedicated to illustrating the historic founding, settlement and development of the Burlington area, past to present. Permanent displays, in-house thematic exhibit presentations of the collection and travelling exhibitions from various public and private collections across Ontario, round out our program. Covering a wide range of historic subject matter, cultural traditions and social meaning, all exhibitions are intended to broaden the notion of heritage and are supported by interpretive programming.
