Museums Of Burlington
The Museums of Burlington include two of the city’s heritage destinations, the Ireland House Museum and the Joseph Brant Museum.
Built in 1837, Ireland House was the home of Joseph Ireland, one of Burlington's earliest settlers. Ireland House Museum is a local treasure that consists of 4 acres of woodland, the original family home, gardens, cottage/drive shed, and picnic areas. Explore the history of Ireland House through guided tours and historical demonstrations.
Discover Burlington’s rich cultural past and early foundations at Joseph Brant Museum, named after the famous Mohawk leader who first settled at the Head-of-the-Lake. Housed in a replica of Joseph Brant’s original home, the museum was founded in 1942 and features a large collection of locally and nationally significant artifacts and archival material.
