Virtual School Programs

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. Our programs are designed to support the learning objectives of the Ontario curriculum at each level.

In this unprecedented time, we have adapted our school program offerings so that we can continue to provide educational services to schools and our community while keeping everyone safe.

Book a virtual program for your class today! Guides and Scouts groups are welcome to book a virtual program to run on an evening or weekend. Programs are available starting January 18, 2021. Sap to Syrup is available starting February 22, 2021.

Each virtual school program is $150 per session and includes:

  • Three pre-recorded videos with heritage demonstrations and discussions.
  • Each video is designed to be stopped at certain points so students can discuss concepts and answer questions asked in the video.
  • Copy of recipe from cooking video.
  • Kahoot quizzes.
  • Individual pre-packaged activity for each student to complete in class/at home.
  • 45 minute live virtual session with a museum staff member including a guided activity and Q&A session
