Info from the Museums of Burlington

In an effort to support public health and government directives with respect to COVID-19, the Museums of Burlington has cancelled Doors Open Burlington for 2020.

We look forward to hosting again in 2021, when we will help to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Doors Open Ontario.


Ireland House Museum Doors Open Burlington

Ireland House Museum

Built in 1837, Ireland House was the home of Joseph Ireland, one of Burlington’s earliest settlers. In 1820, he purchased the land that would become the future site of his family home. Ireland and his descendants occupied this house until 1985. Today, the site consists of the original homestead, gardens, woodland, a potting shed, a cottage/drive shed and picnic area. Be sure to take this virtual tour as part of Digital Doors Open and explore this beautiful home. Or take a look at their online exhibit, Then/Now, to explore everyday Burlington locations with extraordinary stories.
