The Cobourg Museum Foundation works to increase the knowledge of the unique local history of the County of Northumberland in Ontario on the part of residents and visitors alike, and works to collaborate with other organizations having complementary objectives.
Having opened it to the public in 2012, the major current project of the Foundation is the operation of the Sifton-Cook Heritage Centre which will research and communicate, through a variety of means, the history of Northumberland County.
Centrepiece of the Centre is the oldest building in Cobourg, made of limestone and commonly referred to as "the barracks". This is being restored and is an artifact in itself as well as providing housing for the public viewing of displays depicting our heritage.
Financial support for the Foundation comes from membership fees, donations, foundations and interested corporate sponsors.
