The museum also features an exhibit gallery featuring tens of thousands of historic artifacts ranging from photographs, native archaeology and art by members of the Group of Seven, and others.

Researchers will also be able to make benefit of our resource library and micro-fiche materials.

Huronia Museum, a not-for-profit organization, was created in 1947 to collect objects of historical significance, which are to be housed and exhibited for the continued education and benefit of the public. Huronia Museum has four primary themes at the foundation of its collections policy. The Museum will collect objects, papers, photographs and ephemera that relate to:

i)Huron & Ojibway First Nations Peoples

ii)Art, artists and art forms of the Georgian Bay region

iii)Marine History of Georgian Bay

iv)Euro-Canadian and Canadian material culture pertaining to Huronia

“Huronia” is defined as the geographic region inhabited by the Huron/Ouendat people prior to their dispersal in 1649. “Georgian Bay Region” refers to the land and waters of the same geographic area.

  4. From James W Booth
    Am interested in contacting any member of the Contois family who lived on Olive St in Midland Ont. during the 1950’s. I have some pictures taken at that time which they would like to see. Would like to hear how Midland has changed since I last visited it in the 1960;s Also would like to see if there are any pictures of the CNR roundhouse which was near the Tiffin elevator.
