A museum... and so much more... for you to explore!

2019 CALENDAR FEATURES WINNING PHOTOS

Shop local this Christmas and give the gift of a year of photos highlighting the scenic beauty and community activities of St. Clair Township. Moore Museum’s 2019 calendar features the winning entries from the “Seasons in St. Clair” photo contest held in recognition of Canada 150.  Remaining quantities are limited, so plan to visit the Museum soon for great gifts at only $10 each (incl. HST).  Museum hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday until December 14.  If you can’t get to the Museum, you can pay by credit card by phone and we’d be happy to ship one to you (or directly to your gift recipient).  Shipping fee is $4 within Canada. 

Welcome to Moore Museum, Mooretown, Ontario

With 12 historic and exhibit buildings, Moore Museum offers something to engage everyone’s interest.  Spend an hour or two exploring all we have to offer…
Take a stroll around our heritage village and discover the life and work of the past:

  • see the tools of the trade in the blacksmith shop, job printing press shop and harness shop.
  • explore our community’s agricultural roots with intriguing displays of antique farm implements.  
  • understand the valuable link the railroad provided for the early residents of our area as you visit the former Mooretown railroad station and the wooden caboose, furnished and equipped for the train’s next departure.  
  • appreciate modern medicine as you view early 20th century doctors’ equipment and pharmaceutical remedies.  
  • discover the differences and similarities of education over the years in the one-room schoolhouse.
  • realize the challenges of work on the Great Lakes waterway through models, equipment and photographs in the marine room.
  • learn about the lifestyles of past generations in the log cabin and Victorian cottage.

A new highlight which opened in 2013 is the Lionel model train exhibit.  The travelling display used by the Lionel company to promote their products forms the basis of this exhibit room.  Visitors are able to run the "S", "O" and "G" gauge trains by push button and a number of animated features can also be operated.  The whole family will enjoy this engaging new display!
