Mayhem at the Museum

June 29, 2023

A night of fine food and even finer entertainment! Join the Aylmer-Malahide Museum for a trivia night, but keep an eye out for a sinister someone lurking in the crowd. Can you find the culprit after the night takes a tragic turn of events?

We’re so excited to present our first murder mystery dinner theatre event! Join us on August 19, 2023, at 6:30 PM at the Aylmer Legion for a night of interactive theatre and a three-course meal. All proceeds will go to our Relocation Fund.

Tickets are $30 each and are for sale only in advance. Please stop by the museum at 14 East St. or visit our gift shop to purchase yours today! Tickets purchased through this website will be held at the door for their respective attendees. Please leave us your name at checkout and we’ll be sure your tickets are waiting for you on the night of the 19th!

A Warm Welcome to Our Summer Students!

June 7, 2023

We were very excited and fortunate to be able to hire summer students to help us keep everything running smoothly. Young Canada Works and Canada Summer Jobs are huge supporters of this endeavour! Many thanks to Aidan Haldenby and Morgan Kerr for joining the team and for helping us to photograph, list, and enter our collection into the database. We’re very grateful to have Aidan join us for the second summer in a row and to have Morgan join the team!
