The Haliburton Highlands Museum has been celebrating, preserving and sharing our community’s history and heritage for over 50 years! The museum is located in beautiful Glebe Park, just a short drive or pleasant walk from downtown Haliburton. The main gallery is open year-round and features a range of exhibits, on topics including early businesses, sports history and the story of our local lumber industry. In addition, a number of 19th century buildings on the grounds help to bring history to life. Reid House depicts family life in the village at the turn of the 20th century, while the 1870’s log farmstead gives you the chance to explore what life would have been like for settlers arriving in the area a century and a half ago. The museum offers a wide range of programming throughout the year for both kids and adults. With offerings ranging from boat tours and heritage walks to workshops on  topics as varied as genealogy and beekeeping, the museum has something for everyone!
