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 galleries.
