Education

Living Heritage

The Museums of Mississauga bring heritage to life by visually narrating the early settler experience and life in the nineteenth century through to the modern era. Education programs offer students a unique opportunity to experience our shared living heritage.

LEARN, FEEL, CELEBRATE, SHARE

The Museums of Mississauga offer a wide range of learning opportunities that engage students of all ages. Through historical artifacts, hands on activities, stories and interactive presentations, the museum's education programs help students immerse themselves into historical experiences that celebrate Canada's cultural heritage.

All programs link to the Ontario Curriculum and include hands-on elements to enhance learning.

Here's what's hot

Concepts of home circulate widely and often predictably. Sophie Sabet's immersive installation takes a more personal and honest approach to understanding how it is that we might contend with 'home' as both place and feeling.

This summer, enjoy the time-honoured tradition of English Afternoon Tea combined with a tour of the Benares Historic House. With more than 165 years of history, this exquisite Georgian style estate was home to four generations of the Harris and Sayers families.

Grab a blanket and join your friends and neighbours under the night sky for Movie Nights! Celebration Square is a fully-accessible outdoor space that is open to all members of the community. Watch classics, blockbuster hits and family feel-good favourites on the big screens.
