Historic Site Tourist Spot
Markham Museum is a 25acre open-air museum, located in Markham, Ontario, Canada. It is dedicated to the preservation of old buildings and artefacts from Markham's past, especially as a rural village has become an urban centre. The site features nearly 30 buildings: houses, barns, sheds, a train station, a school, a general store, a church, a blacksmith, a harness shop, a saw mill, a cider mill, and many more. One of the oldest buildings is the Hoover House, built in 1824 by a Mennonite family who were originally from Pennsylvania.The site has been open since 1971, using the former Mount Joy School as its main offices and archives. The museum is located at 9350 Highway 48

  • There's nothing to see at the Markham museum. The whole point of a museum is to see artifacts with historical value, but that place is just old..
  • awesome history about early settlers and how they lived
  • Beautiful setting for an outdoor wedding!
  • Nice place and the staff were nice when we inquired for wedding rental. It is an outdoor wedding there.
  • Great location with lots of fun activities for families. The main exhibit is changed out regularly, but the parkland holds many beautiful old buildings that share a part of the story of Markham. There is also a full professional staff to assist in research or genealogical inquiries.
