Canadian Automotive Museum

Established in 1963 and housed in a 1920s car dealership, this museum showcases the development of the automobile, with vehicles and artifacts from 1903 to 1999. The “Our Oshawa is Automotive Heritage” video provides a brief introduction while the video below offers more detail. New for 2020 is the Oshawa’s Automotive Community virtual exhibit, which highlights the origins, growth and community impact of Canada’s largest automotive assembly plant. Did you or a family member work at the General Motors Oshawa Assembly Plant? Share your automotive memories with us. Note: The museum is now open by timed-ticket entry purchased online. Expert guides will also be hosting a Fall Downtown Walking Tour on September 12 at 11 a.m. to bring to life the people and places that made Oshawa “Canada’s Motor City.”
