The Wallaceburg Museum has over 85,000 artifacts and several exhibit spaces including the Settler’s Room focusing on the Baldoon Settlement and the Glass Gallery and Industry rooms depicting on the industrial rise of Wallaceburg. Exhibits also include Wallaceburg’s role in WWI and WWII and the invention of the Lee Enfield rifle. Our approach focuses on individual stories and how various events affected life in the community. We welcome field trips to the museum, or our Curator can visit classrooms with a prepared talk on a specific subject geared to the appropriate age group.
