Community Outreach

The Osgoode Township Museum offers many interesting programs and services to groups and community members of all ages.   

We encourage you to join us for any of our events and programs!

“REMEMBER WHEN” TRAVELLING SENIORS’ PROGRAMS

The Remember When programs are designed for a Senior Citizen audience, and cover such topics as Early School Days, Toys & Games of the Pioneers, Canadian Folk Music, Victorian Christmas, Life on the Farm, The Pioneer Kitchen, etc.    A museum representative will travel to your retirement residence, seniors’ home, or community centre to facilitate a program for your group, which will include a multi-media presentation on a topic relating to themes of days gone by, a group discussion, and a “show and tell” of a selection of museum artifacts relating to the theme of the program.  These programs are approximately 45 minutes in length, are based on a variety of interesting topics!  Please Call the Museum at 613-821-4062 for more details, or to schedule a program for your group. 

Cost:  $75 per presentation
