Long Description:
The Aylmer-Malahide Museum is located at 14 East Street in Aylmer, Ontario. Opened on December 17, 1977 by the Town of Aylmer, they became a stand-alone museum in 1999, changing to the current name in 2011.

The building they are housed in is an exhibit itself, with the portico saved from the Cullen house, iron bars saved from the St. Thomas Psychiatric Hospital and a walnut staircase from the Yorke McConnel estate.

They have a over 35,000 artifacts. Their current exhibit is Just What the Doctor Ordered: The Medical History of Aylmer and Malahide (2022). They have a variety of fundraising events including a Christmas Tour of Homes, Luncheons and Yard Sales.

They are eventually planning to move to 75 Talbot Street East however that still requires fundraising for renovations.
