Digital Access to Heritage Project 2023

The Scugog Shores Museum Village and Archives was the recipient of the Federal Government Digital Access to Heritage grant in 2023. Over the past year, staff have worked hard to begin digitizing the Museum and Archives Collection to be accessed and enjoyed online by residents, researchers, and history lovers all over the world.

As part of the project, the virtual exhibit, Leisure on the Lake, has been created and is available in both English and French. A virtual tour of the Museum Village, accompanied by an audio tour, is also available.

You can now view the Museum and Archives Collection online on Google Arts and Culture and VitaCollections. The Museum is pleased to share that this project has been very popular with over 12,000 views in the first month of public release (February 2024). The project wrapped up March 25, 2024, but staff will continue to digitize the collection and curate digital exhibits to share the history of the Scugog area.

Please note at the time of publishing the VitaCollections server is down for maintenance but will return online.
