Construction of the Joseph Brant Museum Transformation project is underway and is expected to be completed in the summer of 2019.
The expansion will produce a first-rate community museum and heritage centre, incorporating the architectural integrity of the Brant House. With the additional space and amenities, residents and visitors can look forward to increased educational programming, travelling showcases and exhibitions that highlight the impressive Joseph Brant Museum Collections. The Museum is named after Burlington’s first citizen, Joseph Brant (Thayendanegea) who represents the unassailable importance of the First Nations in shaping Canadian nationhood and reminds us that the actions of an individual can impact the course of a nation.
