June of 2023 marks the 50th Anniversary for the museum, which first opened its doors in June 1973 at the old Lion’s Community Centre on Lake Lisgar. The museum moved to its present location in the fall of 1989 and continued to offer school programing at our “new” site. We hope that you will help us celebrate this milestone by booking this June “End of the School Year” program.
The program consists of a 40-minute tour of all three floors of Annandale NHS, as well as, “Golden Treasures,” an exhibition celebrating the Museum’s 50th Anniversary. All tours will be geared to grade level, and include a question period and a take home activity.

Rules were observed and divisions between the classes were both subtle and obvious. Join the servants and masters of Annandale House for a tour and experience these differences first hand. Our program includes interactive activities, games and crafts that connect to the Ontario Curriculum and are grade appropriate.
