Shedding Light on the Past ---that's what the Museums of Mississauga are all about!

Consisting of two historic houses---Bradley Museum and Benares Historic House--- the Museums enable you to step back into the past and capture a taste of life in the early 19th and 20th centuries.

Bradley Museum is located at 1620 Orr Road
Benares Historic House can be found at 1507 Clarkson Road North. For more information, call us at 905-615-4860.

While historic houses are our reasons for being, the Museums of Mississauga offer you more than just 'old stuff in old buildings'. The Museums have been used for teaching thousands of school children as well as sites for location filming, family events, weddings, commercial photography, corporate barbeques and company meetings.

Planning to visit? The Museums are open year-round on Wednesday and Sunday afternoons between 1:00 and 5:00 pm. We also offer extended hours for the entire March Break at Bradley Museum and at both sites during the months of July & August we are open from Wednesday to Sunday. Group Tours can be arranged anytime, any day or night. Call us at 905-615-4860 or email
