About Us

Everyone is Welcome. Hospitality Rules.

Here at the DCMA, we take great care to offer our visitors an unexpected and exceptional experience. We challenge preconceived notions of what one will discover at a museum and reflect this in everything we do: In our ambitious and eclectic mix of exhibits and special events. In the programs and services we provide. In the brand of hospitality we dispense. Why? We understand that providing a full and unique experience while appealing to a range of interests is vital to your decision to visit us.

We are about community. The DCMA would not exist without the support and involvement – past and present – of many special people in and close to Dufferin County. You are our visitors, members, donors, partners and volunteers, and the heart of who we are and what we do. Thank you. Our archives are filled with stories of the community and the people who helped build and shape it, all available to the local history buffs and researchers among you. If you are a newer resident to the area, come discover the rich history of the community you now call home. You will not be disappointed.

Hello Toronto.

Increasingly, folks travelling through the area from the GTA up to Georgian Bay and other places are turning in here to check us out. It does not matter whether it is for a quick stop or the full experience – you are welcome here. You will discover the busy hub of a friendly community complete with travel info, spectacular grounds, gift shop, clean washrooms and great stuff to look at. We like to think the DCMA is where the city meets the country, in beautiful measure.
