Telling the Story of All of Us!

We respectfully acknowledge that the Haliburton Highlands Museum is located on the traditional lands of the Mississauga Anishinaabe and in the territory covered by the  Williams Treaties. The part of the Pre-Cambrian Shield, known to us as the Haliburton Highlands and, as the Anishnaabe have always called it, “Gidaaki”, has been inhabited for thousands of years – as territories for hunting, fishing, gathering and growing food. The intent and spirit of the treaties that form the legal basis of Canada bind us to share the land “for as long as the sun shines, the grass grows and the rivers flow.”

As per the restrictions to help curb the spread of COVID-19 announced by the provincial government on January 3rd, 2022, the museum will be closed until further notice.

Accessibility: The Haliburton Highlands Museum is committed to making its facilities and programs accessible to all visitors. The main museum galleries are wheelchair accessible. Accessible washrooms are available on the second floor.
