Please join us on February 8th for An Evening at the Museum - a joint fundraiser in support of both our museum and the upcoming Waterford Skateboard Park which will soon be located on the land just west of our building.

There'll be great local food provided by Kerry's St. James Street Eatery (including an amazing chocolate fondue buffet!), plenty of local beer and wine, and live music courtesy of Norfolk's own The Shrubberies.

Tickets ($35/person) and can be purchased in advance at either Kerry's Eatery or the museum, or at the door. Your ticket entitles you to two drink sample tickets. Additional drink tickets can be purchased at the event.

Every year during Waterford's amazing Pumpkinfest weekend, the Waterford Heritage & Agricultural Museum throws open its doors for a few extra hours to welcome our community and help celebrate Waterford and the former Townsend Township's rich agricultural history.

Join us on Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. to visit our main gallery (with its focus on Waterford's rich history) and take in our newest exhibits Crafted Heritage: Norfolk County Furniture Makers and POP! A Soda Water History. Then, tour our Agricultural Gallery, which features some fantastic farm machinery from bygone eras, and an exhibit highlighting the achievements of our 2020 inductees in the Norfolk County Agricultural Hall of Fame.

Bringing children? Ask our staff about our museum scavenger hunt!
