  • The Joseph Brant Museum is an important space in our community that provides a window into Burlington’s rich cultural past and early foundations.

    Minister of International Development, MP for Burlington
  • 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.
