The town is now in Stage 2 of the province’s reopening framework. More town amenities, programs and services are becoming available. Provincial orders remain in effect and we must all follow public health guidelines.
Our recovery process is underway and we are carefully reviewing each service as we bring it back to ensure the safety of both staff and the public. Our approach to slowly reopen services will align with the Province’s gradual phased-in approach, following all public health guidelines to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Playgrounds and play structures remain closed.
Public health officials remind you:

General admission is free. Contact us for group rates. Donations are gratefully accepted.
We look forward to seeing you!
The historic buildings of Erchless Estate were once home to Oakville’s founding family but are now the setting for Oakville's community museum. Colonel William Chisholm, an enterprising merchant and shipbuilder, founded the town and built Erchless overlooking his new harbour and Lake Ontario.
Today, visitors can still enjoy that magnificent view and explore the beautiful buildings, grounds and gardens of Erchless. The Oakville Museum offers guided tours of the Chisholm family home, changing exhibitions, special events and programs that tell the fascinating stories of our town.
You can also visit our satellite exhibition gallery at Queen Elizabeth Park Community and Cultural Centre.
The Oakville Museum will be closed to the public until further notice in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Visit the COVID-19 page for more information. When we reopen our regular hours are Tuesday to Sunday, 1 to 4:30 p.m.
Closed for the season.
