Museums in Port Hope

Dorothy’s House Museum

A picturesque frame cottage-style house built in the 1800's has been restored to resemble a workingman’s cottage of that period. There are local artifacts to see and take you back to earlier times. An authentic old barn housing farm tools and implement collection sits out behind the cottage, and a Victorian garden highlights the grounds.
Open weekends Saturday and Sunday from 10-4 throughout July and August unless otherwise arranged. The museum is operated by the Port Hope and District Historical Society and is located in scenic Garden Hill, #3632 Ganaraska Road (formerly county road 9).
