The Ken Seiling Waterloo Region Museum is open with reduced operational hours and limited site access to enable physical distancing and increased cleaning due to COVID 19. Hours of operation are Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. 

The main gallery exhibit called 'What Makes Us Who We Are?', that tells the story of Waterloo Region, re-opens Saturday, August 8. Timed tickets are on sale now for 90-minute visits. Capacity is limited to enable safety protocols that include physical distancing and increased cleaning. Tickets include a Doon Heritage Village 'Walk in the Park' experience though Village buildings will remain closed as they are too small too small to adhere to provincial and Region of Waterloo Public Health guidelines. Bathrooms are open in the Museum building and will remain closed in the Village. Costumed staff and farm animals will also not be present for the village experience. 

Note Regional Council has passed a Face Covering Bylaw that makes it mandatory for residents to wear face coverings in enclosed public places that include museums. Please plan to wear a mask when visiting the Ken Seiling Waterloo Region Museum. The by-law exempts children under the age of five and those who are unable to wear a face covering (due to a medical condition, disability, etc.)..
