Set along the walking trails of beautiful Thomson Memorial Park, Scarborough Museum traces the story of this community's rural roots and two centuries of immigration. The museum is situated on property first granted to David and Mary Thomson, who settled in Scarborough about 1798.
Originally the farm fields of Scarborough’s first settlers, Thomson Memorial Park is now the setting for the Scarborough Museum and its gardens.
Scarborough Museum is one of 10 historic museums operated by the City of Toronto. Toronto's Historic Sites engage visitors, inspire passion, challenge ideas and connect the past to the present.
