About Us

The Brandon General Museum and Archives was formed in 2007 by the City of Brandon, Manitoba. Today we are governed by a board, made up of three City Councillors, and nine dedicated community members. Our mission has and will always be to collect, conserve, study exhibit and interpret historic and heritage materials relating to the City of Brandon and its place within the history of Southwestern Manitoba.

Our museum is located in the original Manitoba Telephone Services (MTS) building located in downtown Brandon on 9th Street across from the old A.E. McKenzie Seeds building. We are surrounded by local history and are home to the BJ Hales Natural History collection.
