Exhibitions

Each year we offer guests a look at artifacts that are not ordinarily on display in our heritage buildings. If you think you've seen all there is to see at the museum village, come back and check out our exhibits in the modest Temporary Gallery space off of the Gift Shop! Season Pass holders get an exclusive opportunity to "meet the specialist" just before each exhibit opens. If you don't have a pass, consider buying one this year.

Following the 1837 Rebellion, thousands of men were imprisoned across Upper Canada, to await trial as traitors.  Rebellion boxes were carved by these prisoners as mementoes for wives, mothers, and daughters by the prisoners at the Toronto Gaol only.  This box, bearing the words "Liberty" on one end, and "Equal Rights" on the other end was made by Asahel Scott of Pickering for his 5-year old daughter, and is the highlight of this rebellion-themed exhibit.
