Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre

Because Health Canada has classified the COVID-19 virus as HIGH risk to Canadians, we’re taking extra precautions to protect all clients, staff and the public. Using an abundance of caution to ensure that staff are able to continue to deliver services and to protect the public in the wake of COVID-19, ALL County Office Buildings are closed to the public until further notice.

The Museum offers adult and children's programming, special events, and is home to the Bruce County Archives & Research Room.

One visit will have you buying a membership, and don’t forget you can also use your membership for free admission at Grey Roots Museum & Archives, Waterloo Region Museum & Archives, Huron County Museum and Simcoe County Museum!

Our Archives and Research Room contains the collective memory of the County of Bruce. Our mandate is to preserve and make available the documentary heritage of Bruce County. The Archives consists of Personal Papers, Municipal Records, Education Records, Business Records, Organizational Records and Multimedia Collections. These records are kept on mobile shelving units, many within acid free storage containers. Visitors to the Research Room will find numerous Bruce County related topics, starting with the reference material in the research area and moving on to archival material.

We are located at 33 Victoria Street North, Southampton, ON in beautiful Saugeen Shores and are only a toll free phone call away at 1-866-318-8889
