COVID-19 Update 

Due to the announcement of the Region of Waterloo going into shutdown, Schneider Haus National Historic Site will be temporarily closed as of December 23 until further notice. All pre-purchased tickets will be fully refunded. We wish you a safe and happy holiday season.

Help us literally write history! Region of Waterloo Museums, Region of Waterloo Archives, and Region of Waterloo Libraries are looking for the public’s help in recording accounts of everyday life during the COVID-19 pandemic for future generations. For more information visit the Help Us Make History page on our website.

McDougall Cottage Historic Site has also launched a new project called The View From Here: An Artist's Perspective on COVID 19 where amateur and professional artists can submit photos of their works of art.

We understand that keeping families happy while practising social distancing at home can be a challenge. We've developed activities to keep you learning and having fun at home. Visit our Museum@Home page and feel free to download activities and colouring sheets. We'll be adding new content to this page regularly, check back often.
