Huron County Museum

Welcome back!

The Huron County Museum is open! But things will look a little different since we last welcomed you through the doors. Please review the new guidelines before visiting.

A Virtual Museum

Access historic newspapers, artifacts, photographs, videos, and historic documents on-line for free.

Collecting Memories: COVID-19

The Huron County Museum is looking for everyday personal accounts of the COVID-19 pandemic and how it is effecting the people and communities in Huron County.   How did an international event affect us in our own communities?


Huron County Archives

COVID-19 Update

In response to COVID-19, restrictions, the Archives’ Reading Room is closed to in-person research. Donations are now being accepted by appointment only. The archivist is available to respond to your research needs/questions by phone or email.

Huron Historic Gaol

The Huron Historic Gaol will remain closed at this time.

We look forward to re-opening in 2021. In the meantime, take a 360 virtual tour and learn more about this National Historic Site from the Gaol’s webpage.


The County of Huron continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation and is working closely with partner agencies to respond accordingly. The ongoing safety and continued well-being of all Huron County staff and residents is our first priority.
