How Can I Visit the Museum?

At the moment, the best place to interact with the Barker Veterinary Museum is right here on this website. Due to recent shifts in work spaces at the OVC, the museum’s large showcase room is currently unavailable. Some smaller displays exist throughout the college, however, and in-person visits may be arranged by appointment by contacting the museum at

Exhibits and artifacts from the Barker Veterinary Museum travel to other museums from time to time. A selection of partnering institutions that have exhibited the museum’s holdings include the Guelph Civic Museum, Wellington County Museum and Archives, Canada Agriculture and Food Museum, Musee Royale 22e Regiment – La Citadelle de Quebec. Travelling exhibitions will be highlighted here along with information about partnering museums and how to access them.
