About Burlington Museums Foundation

The Burlington Museums Foundation is a registered charitable foundation that helps raise friends and funds to support Burlington’s two museums, Joseph Brant Community Museum and Ireland House at Oakridge Farm. Our community museums are cultural destinations that provide multi-faceted opportunities for visitors to explore and learn.


Joseph Brant Museum

Joseph Brant Museum combines the replica Brant house with state-of-the-art exhibition and programming space. Featuring three new galleries and space for travelling exhibitions, the Museum showcases Burlington’s history by sharing interesting and provocative perspectives about the past, present and future.

Ireland House at Oakridge Farm

The original homestead of the Ireland family shares a piece of Burlington’s history and engages visitors with a rich first-hand authentic experience with one of Burlington’s founding families. With guided tours and interpreters in period costumes, visitors step back in time to understand the life of early settlers.

Museums of Burlington

The Museums of Burlington seek to engage and serve our culture rich community through the sharing of heritage, perspectives, stories, objects and experiences.
  • The Joseph Brant Museum is an important space in our community that provides a window into Burlington’s rich cultural past and early foundations.

  • Ireland House is a delightful historic museum in Burlington. The house is beautiful and in such good condition, definitely felt like stepping back in time. The knowledgeable guide was friendly and obviously enjoyed her job, sharing with us many entertaining tidbits of information.

    Museum Visitor
  • I think that it’s important to know our history and important factor in people staying in the community. Joseph Brant Museum has been instrumental in letting people know where we came from and where we are going.
