Sydenham Discovery


The Museum has drawn from its permanent collection and from museums around Southwestern Ontario to create an ambitious online exhibition in partnership with the Department of Canadian Heritage through the Virtual Museums of Canada program.

The result of this project is an engaging virtual exhibition on the history of the Sydenham River watershed, entitled SydenhamDiscovery.

We invite you to take an exciting journey through one of Ontario's most charming and biologically diverse regions. Explore the aquatic life and geography of the Sydenham, and get to know the people who came to its forests and built its villages.

Visitors can also experience the life of an early European settler through the educational and interactive "Great Upper Canada Adventure" game component.
