Collections

The Workers’ History Museum was founded to preserve and interpret many aspects of work culture and workers’ experiences in the National Capital Region. Our collections are focused around workers as individuals, as well as employers, industry, trades, and other aspects of working life.

At present we have three distinct collections:

  • Permanent Collection and Archive for Research
  • Education Collection
  • Reference Collection

If you have any items that you would consider donating to the museum to be included in our collections, please contact us at exhibits@workershistorymuseum.ca
