We alternate our exhibits throughout the year between artifacts from our permanent collection and hosting travelling exhibitions.

Museum and collections strategy

The City of Waterloo has engaged TCI Management Consultants with Reich + Petch Design International to undertake the development of the museum and collections strategy.

The purpose of the strategy is to develop a long term vision and mission for the museum and its collections. The goal is to develop a strategy that fits with the city's special innovation-driven model to address the future needs and community expectations for telling, and continuing, the Waterloo story.
