Description:

View a collection of artifacts representing the history of York.

York Museum preserves and recounts the stories of the former City of York from its early beginnings to the present day. The former city developed as a working-class community, where inexpensive land offered tradespeople and new Canadians the opportunity to build their own homes at a time when home ownership was unattainable for most people.

The oldest object in the collection is a 3,000-year old stone axe that reminds us of the region's long First Nations history. The youngest artifact is a telephone switchboard that was used as late as the 1960s.

Hours of operation - Open by appointment only. Please call 416-396-2819.
