City of Waterloo Museum logoVision

The City of Waterloo Museum is a vibrant heritage portal where residents and visitors personally connect with Waterloo's past, building shared experiences and enhancing culture in our community.


The City of Waterloo Museum serves as a community gathering place where residents and visitors celebrate stories, both local and global, which are unique to the City's growth and evolution. Through its collections, exhibitions, programs, volunteers and staff, the Museum interprets the fabric of our past and points the way to our future.


Come and check out our current exhibit. We alternate our exhibits throughout the year between artifacts from our permanent collection and hosting travelling exhibitions.


The museum is in Conestoga Mall at 550 King St. N., Waterloo and is located by the entrance to the food court.
