Waterloo Region Museum has two exhibit galleries. A main gallery that tells the story of Waterloo Region and a feature gallery that showcases local and travelling exhibits from around the world.  

Main Gallery Exhibit
What Makes Us Who We Are?

Our main exhibit gallery traces the 12,000 year human history of Waterloo Region, from First Nation's peoples, to European settlement at the start of the 1800s, to the manufacturing heydays of the 1900s, to the high tech sector boom of recent years.

Visitors will discover the reasons why people from around the world have immigrated to this region of Canada - whether they came for love, education, a better life, a new job or to find freedom.
