Plan Your Visit

Visitor Guidelines

  • When visiting Guelph Museums sites, we encourage you to continue to take measures to protect your health and safety, and the health of those around you, by practicing social distancing and wearing masks indoors.
  • Please refrain from visiting the museum if you are feeling unwell.
  • The Families Gallery is open to the public Tuesday through Sunday 11 am to 5 pm for drop-in visitation. For those who remain more comfortable with private use of the gallery with their social bubble, the 9:30 to 10:30 am timeslot will remain available for pre-registration. Due to high demand, we encourage you to book these visits early, and notify us as soon as possible if you need to cancel.
  • Visitors 12 years old and younger must be accompanied by an adult or a babysitter who is at least 13 years old.
