About FRIENDS OF THE OXFORD COUNTY MUSEUM SCHOOL
The Thames Valley Museum School was built in 1905, and houses an extensive collection of educational artifacts and toys in the gallery, as well as their archives containing the Oxford County School Board records dating back to the late 1800’s. Travel back in time and sit at one of the wooden desks and write on the slates in the restored 1905 classroom, or the replica log schoolhouse, circa 1830’s.
The Museum School mainly hosts school groups who attend one or more of the educational programs that replicate the rural schoolhouse experience. “The Three R’s” and “Cartography” take children back to the early 1900’s for lessons that provide a refreshing look at how our curriculum has – and hasn’t – changed in the last 100 years.
The Museum School also provides children's summer camp programs and activity days during the school year.
