Guelph Civic Museum Reviews & Ratings
A great resource to explore Guelph history! Really enjoyed the brewing exhibit, more reading and photographic material than hard exhibits but still very enjoyable. Also loved learning about the Italian immigrant experience...some cool interactive pieces there too...bring the kids!
The If you are into history and knowing about the historical importance of different cities, you'll be giving this place a 5 star. So beautifully and systematically organised. The ticket price was affordable. The star I deducted because I am not much into history and it didn't attract me as much as some other historic museums have done.
The Guelph Civic Museum is a favourite spot in Guelph for our family. We review our membership annually. Our kids love the children’s room & every time they go they learn something new. It would be nice if they could do some changes and updates to the children’s room to make it more innovative and fresh. We love to bring a picnic lunch & eat it outside during warmer weather. The museum is in a beautiful location.
Small but quite nice museum. Lovely beadwork items in a display on First Nations history in the area.
The main floor houses rotating exhibits which showcased the town's brewing history on our visit and the third floor showcases permanent exhibits on the town's economic development. It's not a large museum but there was certainly enough for us to enjoy a couple hours. The museum building located right next to the Basilica of her Lady Immaculate provides an amazing architectural photo opp. Admission is only a small fee and it includes the McCrae museum which is a 5 minute drive away and is the doctor's house that has been preserved as a heritage site. Highly recommended for anyone interested in a bit of Guelph history.
