Lambton Heritage Museum is entrusted with the care of over 25,000 historic artifacts which preserve the history of Lambton County. Situated on 30 acres, the museum maintains six historic buildings, two display buildings and one main exhibition centre. The museum is open year-round and provides picnic grounds and the 1km Woodland Heritage Trail. Lambton Heritage Museum has evolved from a passive museum site to an active experiential tourism destination. The exhibition gallery didn’t meet the requirements of the current museum’s demand. With this in mind, 17|21 proposed a new vision for the gallery that exhibits the museum’s artifacts in a new and flexible open space that allows for a seamless dialogue between the exhibits and exhibit space of the gallery. With in the space of the exhibit gallery two multi-activity rooms were designed to add more flexibility of the museum space that will allow itinerary exhibits, receptions, summer camps and museum functions.
