About Us

We are a National Trust Resilient Historic Places Winner, and Canada’s industrial textile history museum.

We interpret the history of the woollen textile industry in the Mississippi River Valley, and the effects it had on the social, cultural and industrial development of the region.

We also provide exhibits and education on fibre arts and a centre for the study of industrial textiles, while preserving our historic building and artifacts.

We acknowledge that this sacred land on which Mississippi Mills is now located has been a site of human activity for over 10,000 years and is rich in Indigenous history. This land is the ancestral and unceded territory of the Algonquin Anishinaabe Nation. We are grateful to the Algonquin ancestors who cared for the land and water in order that we might meet here today.
