What We Collect

The YRDSB Museum and Archives preserves historical artefacts and documents relating to the Board and the history of public education in York Region

But what does preserving the history of education mean?  It means that we collect items that help to answer the following questions:


   ·      Who taught and who was educated?

    ·      What was taught?

    ·      Where did learning take place?

    ·      How was teaching done?

    ·      How was education managed?

    ·      Why did we educate the way that we did?

Our collection includes school equipment, attendance registers, photographs, administrative papers, curriculum guidelines, student work, furniture, and textbooks.

You Can Help Us!

We have over 10,000 objects and our collection continues to grow!   

While the Board itself is a rich resource from which we build our collections, we also accept donations from outside the Board.  If you have something that you think will help us with building our understanding of the educational history of York Region, please contact us.   

Please see our Collections Guidelines​ to get an idea of the kinds of things that we collect.​
