The Markham Museum always has something going on, it is a nice place to visit and go for a stroll and see all the heritage buildings that are located at the back. Great for pictures and learn about history from the pioneer times.

The Markham museum offers a blast of the past and programming that connects with the present. Great childrens programs and links to the community. From farm to table was an excellent exhibit creating links to the quickly disappearing countryside. Markham was originally a farming community so the exhibit had great poignancy as our grade A farmland vanishes into tract housing.

A very interesting museum to learn about the history of a very unique area of Ontario. Many historical buildings have been moved to the site, including a pioneer church. This is available to be booked for weddings. Beautiful.

I was on a bus tour so our time was limited. We did not get to see all the buildings. Everything was well maintained. Our Tour Guide Catherine was very well spoken and very knowledgeable. Very willing to answer questions. Of course everyone's favorite building was the General Store. Would love to visit again
