The Town of Oakville is excited to reopen our doors as soon as we can safely do so. Residents will be able to register for drop-in activities and rentals at our fitness centres, gymnasiums and arenas starting February 18 and will be able to start visiting on February 22. As we work to reassemble our staffing teams and prepare our health and safety plans, we will begin to reopen other amenities. Please be patient as we work through the logistics to safely resume activities under the Provincial directions.
Public health officials remind 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.
Now beautifully decorated for the holidays, take a stroll past Erchless Estate for a glimpse of Christmases past. New this year, guests can also take a self-guided tour of outdoor exhibits and lights display!
Oakville Museum will be closed until further notice once Ontario enters the Provincewide Shutdown as of Saturday, December 26, 2020.
Closed to the public until further notice in response to the COVID-19 pandemic
