Dundas is a community tucked beneath the Niagara Escarpment in southern Ontario, Canada. It became incorporated as a town on July 28, 1847. Dundas today, with its picturesque downtown, heritage homes and tree lined streets, still echoes that time. Informative, and fun! At the Dundas Museum & Archives, discover Dundas from the time of the glaciers' slow carving of the valley through to today's vibrant community. The experiences and impact of individuals along the way come alive through objects used in their every day lives. We invite you to visit and explore the stories of people and events that have shaped the Valley Town.

Since there is not admission charge you can drop in for 25-30, see a few very nice paintings and carry on with your day exploring Dundas. Yes it is a small... More

I took my father-in-law to visit the museum. He always has lots of questions about the history of a place. I just moved to Dundas and had never been. It was a great experience. The staff were friendly and helpful.
