Programs

At the Haliburton Highlands Museum, we have a variety of programs available for all ages and interests. This includes seasonal programming and holiday themed events.

Victoria Day, Cookie Decorating

We have all-season programming for adults including arts & culture events, historical tours, and educational workshops. Beekeeping with Ron Lofthouse is hosted at the museum annually in February. In partnership with Canoe FM, the museum presents Jazz at the Museum, bringing popular Canadian jazz musicians to rural audiences in July since 2013. Rural Rogues Productions and the museum will be presenting RR3: Scenes from a Playwrights’ Workshop this August. Lost Haliburton Boat Tours explores the golden age of the lodges and resorts of the Five Lake Chain aboard the Lady of the Lake, presented by the museum in partnership with Highlands Boat Tours.

Heritage Happenings

We have summer programming for children targeted to a variety of interests and hobbies. Heritage Happenings is the museum’s own programming for children ages 6-12, this year themed around 20th century decades, incorporating crafts and activities for a fun-filled learning experience.  In Partnership with Deep Roots Adventure, the museum has previously ran the weekly program Wilderness School and will now be introducing Night at the Museum. This new program will provide an opportunity for younger children to learn about overnight camping and explore Glebe Park. Also new this year is Playing with Natural Solutions, a five-week program for children ages 6-12, to better to connect to our natural world, through outdoor games, crafts, songs and music.
