New photos of the grounds available, click here!

Our volunteer gardeners have been very hard at work for the last two summers landscaping our entire ground of the Bowmanville Museum and Sarah Jane Williams Heritage Centre. Come walk through to watch our seasonal changes, it’s beautiful!

The Bowmanville Museum, Sarah Jane Williams Heritage Centre, and Clarke Museum are available to rent for special occasions. The stunning grounds and Edwardian interior of the Bowmanville Museum are popular locations for both wedding photos and ceremonies year round. Consider booking your next corporate event, workshop, meeting, or family picnic at one of our sites.


The rental of the Bowmanville Museum’s grounds for the purpose of portraits includes the use of the Bowmanville Museum’s verandah, however it excludes uses of washroom facilities at the museums after regular hours.

Wedding Photography is also available.

Small wedding services, receptions and showers may also be held at the Bowmanville Museum.

For more information regarding rentals please contact our program co-ordinator Amy Barron at or call the museum office at 905-623-2734.
