Welcome to the Aurora Museum & Archives Capturing the Stories of Aurora

The Aurora Museum & Archives grieves the tragic loss of Indigenous children whose bodies were found in unmarked graves on the sites of former Residential Schools. Our role as a museum is to ensure that the history and stories of the Indigenous community are included in our collection and shared with the community. We need to continue educating and holding ourselves accountable for our commitments to Reconciliation. Released in 2015, the Truth and Reconciliation Report outlined 94 Calls to Action including the need for every Canadian to educate themselves about Indigenous history and the legacy of Residential Schools. We affirm our commitment to that responsibility and have drafted a Reconciliation Action Plan that outlines steps that we at the Museum will undertake.
