I can't wait for them to open again this season. The displays are very well done and a trip through the main part of the museum tells the story of Ingersoll and its surroundings so very well. The cheese-making part of the museum is equally interesting. I didn't get into the blacksmith shop last year but will this year. The most amazing thing in the museum, however, is a giant hand-carved piece that tells the story of the people travelling across Ontario and clearing the land with oxen. It is the most remarkable piece of art I've ever seen. You are not allowed to photograph it however since it doesn't legally belong to the museum but it is certainly worth the trip to see it.

The only unfortunate thing is, they don't make the cheese. It would be more interesting if they could make the cheese. But it is an interesting tour of a cheese factory from the 1800's.

This is really four museums for the price of one (free!). The demonstration of early cheese-making and how it came to be centred in this area, was fascinating. Much of the equipment is still operational. The volunteer leading the presentation was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Make sure you take the time to visit the adjacent Oxford County Museum School for a snapshot of what an early school room was like. There are many great photo ops as well. The Agricultural Museum has many old farming implements which are also photogenic. If you are into blacksmithing, there is a blacksmith shop as well.

We went for a visit,and had a lovely conversation about the museum and history. I brought my family, so it was a group of 8 people walking through the museum. So many interesting artifacts. We ended up buying local cheese, and some sugar canes in different flavours.
This is definitely a place to stop by, when travelling through or past Ingersoll.

Thoroughly our visit to the museum. Guide helpful and informative, but also we were allowed to wander at our own pace. Well worth a visit.
