    It's a set of three small historical houses which were built on the Lakeside in the 1800's. The main house has a tiny gift shop, offices, and a few paintings and artifacts donated from some of the first families of Oshawa. Five bucks per person gets you a tour of the other two houses- one a schoolhouse (very neat! Kids got a kick out of it -"what's a Dunce cap?" 😂) and the other the "rich" home of an old prominent family. The museum is located right next to the beach and there's a playground with splash pad, the harbour, and paths to walk down if you want to spend the rest of the afternoon enjoying the outdoors. Parking is free, and lot is within a block of the museum. Not a bad way to pass an afternoon. Staff is very friendly and laid back.
