Overview

The County Museum and Archives provides insights into everyday life from the late eighteenth through the twentieth century and focuses particularly on telling the story of Lennox and Addington County. The story of the settlement and historical development of the County of Lennox and Addington is highlighted in themed exhibits. A series of monthly programs complement the exhibits and curriculum-based educational programs and extension presentations are offered for school classes. The Archives holds a significant paper collection documenting the ongoing historical settlement and development of the County from its initial settlement by Loyalist exiles at the end of the 18th century. A modern reading room equipped with computer access ports at the reading room tables and digital reader printers offers researchers a wealth of primary, microfilm and published sources for genealogical research. In addition, finding aids to B/M/D in local newspapers and cemeteries and research files are available.

The caretakers were so friendly, they change the displays so you do not see the same thing year after year. It is well worth the stop in Napanee to see all the different displays. The overall appearance was spotless and just a nice place to...More

We were doing family history research and had no idea about the museum and special local historical / cultural exhibits. We need more time to explore the old jail and special features. The building has been carefully restored and is a delight to visit.

I attended an Author's Reading by Maureen Jennings at the Museum on the weekend. It was such a lovely, welcoming space for this event. It was also very suitable, since many of Ms. Jennings books (Murdoch Mysteries, etc) are historical novels. All around, it was...More

Fun and friendly little step into the past. Local exhibits were well portrayed, fun and eclectic. Visiting exhibit from the ROM of counterfeits was interactive and showed ancient fakes to present day. Very inexpensive, free parking and interesting. Great way to spend a couple hours.
