Brockville Arts Centre Located on the St. Lawrence River in the world famous 1000 Islands region, the Brockville Arts Centre is recognized as one of the finest medium size historic theatres in Canada. Year after year we welcome thousands of theatregoers to an experience that makes them feel close and connected to the performers on stage.

The Brockville Arts Centre has one of the region’s top art galleries, is fully accessible and provides phonic in-ear devices for those with hearing disabilities.  The theatre is air conditioned, has ample free parking and the lobby bar is licensed (LLBO).

The theatre is located in the heart of historic downtown Brockville within easy walking distance of the city’s beautiful St. Lawrence River harbour and fine restaurants.

For more information call toll free 1-877-342-7122. Treat yourself and your guests to one of Canada’s best entertainment experiences.

Situated in Brockville's historic downtown core, the Brockville Museum features exhibits and artifacts related to over 200 years of our social and commercial development and the integral role the St. Lawrence river has played. The Brockville Museum is committed to preserving and promoting the history of Brockville through continuing quality exhibits and education programs.  The museum activities are strongly supported by an expanding collection of related artifacts and archival material.  The Brockville Museum will grow with, and for the community, providing a source of knowledge on the heritage of Brockville for present and future generations.

Changing thematic displays and special events complement our permanent exhibits. The Museum also provides geneology searches. There's always lots to do! 

Heritage Brockville  

Brockville's municipal cultural heritage committee is one of hundreds of appointed advisory committees that exist in Ontario communities. Our committee was first set up in 1977, under the provisions of the 1975 Ontario Heritage Act.

Members of Heritage Brockville are appointed by Brockville City Council to advise on the retention and enhancement of our cultural heritage and environment.

Our goals are:

  • To promote Brockville's existing stock of buildings and townscapes through education and public relations. We do this with plaques placed on buildings of historical importance, articles, speeches, walking tours, booklets, and photographic displays for the general public and city visitors.
  • To encourage and recognize, with Heritage Awards, the successful restoration, conservation, and rehabilitation of existing buildings in Brockville.
  • To provide any individuals or groups with free advice on the use of historically appropriate building materials, colours, and signage.
  • To suggest historical and architectural designation of buildings and properties under the Ontario Heritage Act.
  • To collect historical information to benefit property owners in our city.

The committee is made up of ten citizens who volunteer their time to work toward these goals. They have relevant skills, interest in, and knowledge of architecture, construction, conservation, and preservation, as well as contacts within the heritage community.

Appointments are made yearly to Heritage Brockville by the Mayor and Council for a maximum four-year term. Brockville citizens interested in filling any available positions may write to the mayor for consideration at the end of the calendar year.

Monthly meetings are open to the public and are usually held in Brockville City Hall.
