Planning Your Visit

 

Welcome to the  Oxford County Museum School! 

We have moved to the Town of Ingersoll and the new Museum School is located at the Ingersoll Cheese and Agricultural Museum, 290 Harris St. just off highway 401. 

We opened for the first time for the Christmas festivities, and are getting ready for school groups starting after March Break. Our archives and office are located in the basement of the Town Centre at 130 Oxford St.  If you wish to contact the Museum School, please call or e-mail at 519-926-0206 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

Directions

The Town of Ingersoll is at exit 218 off highway 401. Go north on Harris St. and turn left on Centennial Lane, at the sign for the Ingersoll Cheese and Agricultural Museum to find the new Museum School. 

Our archives and office is located on Oxford St. which is found by continuing on Harris St. and following as the road curves left on Canturbury St.  At the stop sign, turn right onto Thames St.  At the traffic lights, turn left onto King St.   The Town Centre is straight ahead on Oxford St.  Parking is available in the lot on the right, before crossing Oxford St. and it is free for 3 hours. We are located downstairs in the Town Centre.  Follow the winding hallway to the office space where you'll find me in the back office.  It is best to call ahead to ensure I will be in that location.

Group Tours

Groups will enjoy a journey to a bygone era when God Save the King was Canada’s national anthem, and students sat in rows of wooden desks, scribing with their straight pen and ink. Bus tours are welcome; group rates available.

Gift Shop

The Museum School Gift Shop offers a range of early toys, writing implements and books.
