The town is now in Stage 3 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.
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.
Welcome back! The Oakville Museum at Erchless Estate will be open for pre-booked time tours starting Thursday, September 24. Due to limited room capacity tours are restricted to a maximum of 6 people who share the same social circle. Walk-in visits are not permitted at this time. Visit our Oakville Museum Tour page for registration links and more information.
