Ingersoll Cheese & Agricultural Museum

Voted the Top Small Museum in Ontario, this cluster of seven buildings focuses on the history of cheese production in the province, but it offers so much more – including the Oxford County Museum School, blacksmith shop, breathtaking wood sculptures by the late Wilson Johnson, and local history exhibits. Opened in 1977, this museum is a faithful recreation of a 19th-century cheese factory, paying tribute to the cheese-making history of Oxford County and the Town of Ingersoll in particular. While the museum is open with reduced hours, and with COVID-19 protocols in place, check their website before visiting. As part of Digital Doors Open, watch the video below (from Tourism Oxford) to learn more about the significance of this museum. Learn how to make cheese in this video from Tasty. Explore the Oxford County Cheese Trail. Or find some mouth-watering cheese recipes from the Food Network Canada.
