Update Effective November, 2021
With the Proof of Vaccination policy:
• All Museum visitors will be asked if they pass screening (don’t have symptoms)
• Museum Front Desk volunteers will ask for and check Vaccine Certificate and government-issued ID for visitors (not for staff and volunteers). They will do this for Archives visitors as well.
The Brockville Museum is now open for visitors to its exhibits by appointment only and with capacity limits. The Museum building, which houses the Archives of the Leeds & Grenville Branch, is open Tuesday through Saturday between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm.
The Leeds & Grenville Branch of OGS is working to re-open our Archives to visitors beginning Tuesday, September 14th, but only by appointment. Our space limitations are such that we can only accommodate two visitors at a time in order to maintain physical distancing. Masks must be worn to enter the Museum building, and while in our Archives space.
In order to book an appointment, please leave a message on our Voice Mail system (613-342-7773) or by email at [email protected], telling us your name and contact information (email and telephone preferred), the date and time you would prefer to visit, and alternates if possible. We would also like to know the names or locations that you wish to research so that we can determine which resources we have available to assist. Our Archives appointments will begin at either 15 minutes before the hour, or 15 minutes after, to avoid arrivals of Museum visitors and Archives visitors at the front desk at the same time.
Once we receive your request we will reach out to our researchers to determine whether we can accommodate your request, and match up the request with a researcher. Any further instructions about on-site requirements will be given when we confirm your appointment. We will advise the Museum once we confirm your appointment. This process will take at least 48 hours to complete, so please be patient with us. We are all volunteers.
Please note that drop-ins CANNOT be accommodated at this time. If you have any questions, please either leave us a voice mail or send us an email and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
