Overview
More
The Lambton Heritage Museum is home to thousands of artifacts, documents and photographs that tell the story of the County of Lambton. At the time of its founding, the Museum displayed just two private collections, but now the extensive 50,000 square foot complex is home to more than 25,000 artifacts and 10,000 photographs depicting the history of Lambton County. At the Lambton Heritage Museum visitors can discover the only horse-drawn ambulance in Ontario, admire local historical views or walk by the steam engine which supported the largest industry in Bosanquet for most of the last century. The museum is home to a diverse collection that ranges from Canada's largest collection of pressed glass to last remaining stump puller produced by the Peterson Foundry in Sarnia. The museum's antique engines and stoves include models not known to survive in any other collection, private or public.

We have been here a number of times and always learn something new. Good displays inside and we like the outdoor buildings. The staff are extremely helpful. Don't miss the annual Paint Ontario show, and the return of the tundra swans in the fields behind...More

I'll be honest, originally I was only going for the AC. What I discovered was a hidden gem with gloriously cold galleries! I went with my daughter, 3 years and my son, 4 months. The galleries were clean, well organized and interesting. There was a...More

We visited the museum for a few hours and the boys had their eyes opened with some remarkable pieces of history. Our favourite was the Old School House. Glad we visited.

Love the attractions. Filled with authentic exhibits and out side is amazing with the little village they moved to simulate the time period of what things looked like in another time. Very good and well put together. Could spend hours here.
