The Tiny Museum

Coming soon to the Niagara-on-the-Lake Museum – the Tiny Museum! The Tiny Museum was inspired by the tiny home phenomenon, but instead of having a bed and a kitchen, it has display cases! The Tiny Museum can come right to your school, bringing the Museum's collection outside its walls.  Curriculum-based programs currently being developed are:

  • People of Niagara
  • Voices of Freedom
  • Learning from Artefacts
  • Indigenous Peoples & Treaties
  • War of 1812
  • Rebellion of 1837

Stay tuned for more information on how to book the Tiny Museum for your class.

Voices of Freedom Black History Program

Niagara-on-the-Lake (NOTL) is one of the few Towns in Ontario that has had Black residents since its founding and since the beginning of the province. This program is designed to tell the story of Black Canadians in our early history through hands-on activities and the exploration of historical materials. Students are encouraged to experience history by asking questions, taking risks, and working as a team, while developing their critical thinking skills. This constructive and active program will allow students to connect to the past in a new way, while making learning exciting! For more information on this program please see (attached) teacher overview.
