Clarington Christmas Countdown


Remembrance Day

Clarington Museums and Archives in partnership with Clarington Public Library present Mr. Larry Bryan as he shares the stories of three Canadian Victoria Cross recipients, and talks about the importance of remembering the sacrifices and achievements of the men and women who served in Canada’s military in times of war, military conflict and peace.


Virtual Spirit Walk

Over the years, Clarington Museums has had numerous people come through our doors to research their family or home, showing us different artifacts they found in their attic and even to share with us strange events that have taken place within their daily lives here in Bowmanville.

Bowmanville is a town that is no stranger to the paranormal or the odd. We have incidents of the strange dating back to the early settlers who first came to this area. These stories have been handed down through generation to generation and now form part of our local folklore. Discover the Great Bank Robbery, the Boy at the Bridge, the Wolves in the Woods, and more, if you dare…

Digital Newspapers

Clarington Museums & Archives has a large collection of newspapers including the Canadian Statesman, Bowmanville Merchant, and Orono Times. In 2012 a partnership was made with the Clarington Public Library to plan the digitization of the newspaper collection. It was decided that the company: MTL Microimage Technologies Limited would complete the digitization. We still have all copies of the physical newspapers until such a time as preservation is no longer possible or needed.

Check out the online digitized newspapers.
