About the Tour of Homes
The Aylmer-Malahide Museum Volunteers’ annual Christmas Tour of Homes began in 2001. This fundraiser was developed to benefit the museum’s operation and raise awareness of local businesses. It is now a Christmas tradition for many locals and visitors from all over Ontario and beyond. Four unique, interesting and/or historical homes are chosen in the Aylmer Area. These homes are decorated for Christmas and then opened for participants to tour. This is a major fundraiser for the museum. Many volunteer hours and support from homeowners and local businesses go into making this an annual success.
