The Lambton Heritage Museum is committed to making all of its collections of documents and artifacts that are historically significant to Lambton County available to the public. Our staff support the many researchers that visit each year to examine material in the collections.

While the Museum makes every effort to accommodate the needs of researchers there are practical constraints of space, time, and staff to assist. Researchers should contact the Museum  to discuss their needs in advance of the start of their project.  If you wish to see material that is in storage, please provide as much notice as possible, preferably three to four weeks. This will enable us to reserve work space and staff time for your visit. Contact us with as much detail as possible about your research and about what you wish to see from the collections.

Costs may be associated depending on the type and scale of the request.

Research appointments are available Monday – Friday only.
