The Woodland Cultural Centre, a museum of excellence, opens the doors to Southern Ontario’s First Nations past, present, and future. School and Public programs, offer interested visitors the opportunity to step into the past and discover Native Ontario.
Prearranged tours of the Centre’s premier collections are available through the Museum Education program. Guided tours of the museum facility are created to fit the needs of the visitor – you decide the time, the activities, and the length of your visit.
A tour of the museum of the Woodland Cultural Centre involves more than viewing the Centre’s collection of artifacts and art. A complete tour experience also incorporates many supplementary activities:
• Discovery Labs

• Music and Dance workshops
• Museum Scavenger Hunts
• Video Presentations
• Residential School Tour
• Land Claims workshop
• Preschool Activities
• Panel Discussions
• Craft workshops
The Woodland Cultural Centre can accommodate groups of 20 to 100 people (depending on staff availability) on half day to full day tours. Tours are available Tuesday through Friday, year-round. After-hours tours can be accommodated with plenty of advanced notice and with an additional after-hours fee. Weekend tours are available from June until October. There is a group minimum of 20 people for all tours.
There are no food services but the centre does have a cafeteria and picnic grounds for visitors to comfortably have their midday meal.
A fee of $150.00 is assessed if less than two (2) weeks noticed is provided for tour cancellation (unless due to weather).
For those interested in participating in Museum Education programming yet unable to visit the Centre, the Educational Kits program brings the Woodland cultures to your school or organization.
