MUSEUM-ARCHIVE HISTORY
For years, the Canadian Lithuanian Community had been looking for a home to preserve and display historically significant artifacts of Lithuanians in Canada.  Based on the conceptual planning by architect George Sederavičius, the museum-archives became a reality in 1988.  Every few months new exhibitions are featured, important documentation gathered, catalogued, preserved and stored.


ACTIVITIES
Members of the archive collect, organize, preserve and display documents, photographs, videos, film, audio recordings, fine art, textiles, memorabilia, souvenirs of community events, uniforms, medals, coins, maps, flags, and rare books or periodicals which pertain to Lithuania or Lithuanian Canadians. We also have a small lending library of 2,148 books on Lithuanian history, archaeology, art, anthropology, folklore, music and literature.
