Popped in here while visiting local area after finding reviews online - glad we did!

Small museum with 2 large rooms with displays and information all about the history of the local area and the town of Waterford. Free to enter (donation - you will be happy to make one after visiting and it supports the place to keep going!)

A lot of artefacts and old farm machinery to see. Well worth an hour of your time!

Here a place you don't want to miss if you appreciate history. A well laid out museum with some very interesting and intriguing displays. Norfolk should be proud of this place!

Besides the agricultural equipment, there were numerous items from the late 19th and early 20th century, including buggies, sleds, agricultural products, blacksmiths' stuff, etc.

Thank you so much for visiting our museum this summer! If you happen to be in the Waterford, ON area this winter, we'd be happy to have you pop by to see our two temporary exhibits - "Potters of Brant & Norfolk" (on until January 11, 2019) and "Quilting for a Cause: Red Cross Quilts of the Great War" (on until February 15, 2019).

The displays are interesting and provide lots of historical information. Each area shows unique items and fine old pieces of history. We also picked up some brochures of other Norfolk destinations.

In agricultural Norfolk County, Ontario, Canada, no finer museum is available. Tremendous quality of displays, great original implements & tools of historic significance, exhibits of farm life, ladies dresses, clothing, people, tractors, etc. You can purchase excellent books and memorabilia at modest prices and there is also some simple food, snacks and drinks at low prices.

Lots of old history and a neat way to get to know the agricultural area that is so unique. I love the old farms and learning about them.
