The Society runs a variety of events to provide entertaining and educational activities for the residents and visitors of Niagara-on-the-Lake. From quality lectures to musical performances in the galleries, the Society works hard at being a focal point of culture in Niagara.
Our annual lecture series is held on the 3rd Thursday of each month from March to September. Lectures start at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets are $10 for the general public or free for Niagara Historical Society Members.
Reservations required as seating is limited.
In 2016, we celebrate 120 years of our collection by looking at the foundation of our Society and Museum, other early museums and the importance of collections.
