The Canadian Transportation Museum and Heritage Village (CTMHV) is a non-profit charitable organization and facility that was established in 1954 as the Historic Vehicle Society of Ontario, (which is still the legally registered name of the organization). Fifty-four acres of property were purchased in the 1970’s and an additional 46 acres were obtained in 2005, for a total of 100 acres of property on the Arner Townline. The village consists of over 20 pioneer buildings including a one-room school house, a general store, barber shop, church, train station, doctor’s office, several log cabins and well-known historic homes. The mission of the museum is “to preserve the past of Canada South for the Education and Interpretation of present and future generations,” which includes all of you and all of your students, family and friends. The CTMHV holds its collection and exists for the benefit of the public. Our staff consists of a handful of paid employees and a multitude of amazing volunteers for whom we are especially grateful.
The Canadian Transportation Museum and Heritage Village is proud to offer excellent programs in a historic village setting featuring authentic buildings dating back to 1820. Our programs are designed to provide solid, hands-on enhancements to your pioneer studies. We also offer programs in the transportation museum, combined programs and in-school or off site programs. Our programs are presented by an experienced professional, and are aided by talented and dedicated volunteers. Select your program below for more information.
