20 years of Grey Roots!

2024 marks the 20th Anniversary of Grey Roots Museum & Archives.

Twenty years of presenting world class exhibitions, events and programming to visitors and residents of Grey County. Two decades of developing Moreston Heritage Village into a beloved living history site, of providing exceptional service to any and all, from simple tourism inquiries, to generation spanning research projects. Over the last twenty years, we've been honoured to work alongside a multitude of exceptional volunteers, community organizations, cultural institutions and municipalities - following our vision to help build better communities.

Read on for details on the celebrations we've planned for this milestone achievement throughout 2024 - we invite you to celebrate with us!

Save the date! On Friday June 28th we officially kick off our 20th Anniversary Celebration!

This fun, lighthearted event falls on a PD day Friday and is perfect for kids & families. Enjoy treats, activities and access to our current exhibitions, including the family favourite Inspiring Nature.

Children are served ice cream on the Grey Roots patio.

Look for tickets to go on sale closer to the event, but for now, set aside the evening of Friday, November 8th.
