A field trip to the Lambton Heritage Museum is a one-of-a-kind learning opportunity for your class that brings curriculum to life and creates lasting memories. Students have an opportunity to handle museum artifacts from our education collection and explore the history of Lambton County.

Explore our school program offerings at very reasonable prices. Most programs require 1.5 to 2 hours (program times can be adjusted to suit your needs).

Spring/Fall School Tours

Available in May, June, September and October. Cost is $3.75 per student and there is no charge for supervising adults.

  • Pioneer Discovery Tour (Junior-Senior)
    This self-guided program allows students to interact with selected museum artifacts as they explore key aspects of early life in Lambton. Each student group must be accompanied by an adult group leader. The tour includes visits to the:

    • Beef-ring Slaughterhouse
    • Ravenswood Blacksmith Shop
    • 1857 Tudhop Pioneer Home
    • School House
    • Transportation Barn
    • Agricultural Barn
  • Short Stay Museum Visit (All Grade Levels)
    If you have less than 90 minutes to spend at the museum, we suggest your class enjoy a self-guided tour of the site with their adult group leaders. Each student can complete an “I Spy” scavenger hunt during their visit.
