Help us build a new exhibit May 2022!
We are seeking local artists and community members/groups aid in creating a new exhibit in our giftshop. Open to all ages, any medium is welcome as long as they are safe. The art pieces must reflect and/or be inspired by the four virtues of the Children of Peace: Faith, Love, Hope and Charity.

Road to Rebellion has arrived!
Opened in June 2020, the Road to Rebellion exhibit at the Sharon Temple National Historic Site and Museum highlights the role of the Children of Peace, the Community of Sharon and the Sharon Temple during the Rebellion of 1837 in their quest for equality, democracy and responsible government.
Curated by David Lichty, Master of Museum Studies (University of Toronto)

In the Community:
Each season, the East Gwillimbury Public Library graciously allows us to use their display cases to showcase some of the museum's unique artifacts and archival documents. This provides our seasonal employees with an opportunity to create their own exhibits - from initial concept through story-boarding to installation.
Stay tuned for updates on our next mini-exhibit!
A recent exhibit that was hosted at the Holland Landing Library was 'David Willson: An Influential Canadian Author'. This exhibit (see left) was developed by STMS Volunteer, Mary Watson.
