Who You'll be Assisting

Museums of Burlington

Built in 1837, Ireland House is one of Burlington's oldest heritage homes. This historic home was lived in by Ireland Family members for 150 years. Restorations of the house in 1987-1991 have reclaimed missing elements of former times, bringing the Museum back to its feeling of a period home.

Guided tours, heritage demonstrations, and interactive programming bring Burlington’s past to the present as visitors explore the house, grounds and interpretive centre.

Joseph Brant Museum is Burlington’s community museum. With the replica of the homestead of Joseph Brant 'Thayendanegea' (1742-1807) serving as a beacon, the facility will feature three permanent galleries, space for travelling exhibitions and a dedicated programming area for school groups and education programs.

The ‘new’ Joseph Brant Museum will feature three new galleries and space for travelling exhibitions. The Museum will showcase Burlington’s history as well as provide fun, edutainment experiences. By sharing interesting and provocative perspectives about where we have been, where we are now and where we are going, we share in building a culturally diverse community.

Due to open in the summer of 2019.
