BTHS is an agricultural museum.  Over the years the residents of Burford Township have gathered up and donated artefacts to the museum.    Slowly we are bringing artefacts back onto public view.  We have the data base programme from the Ontario Museums Association, and will be creating a searchable database for visitors.  However, this may take a while to complete —  a long while…..

The museum has only volunteers – we have no paid staff.  Currently we are open by chance, or by contacting a member.  

We are now listed on the Ontario Museums Association site: museumsontario.ca
