Collection

The MacLachlan Woodworking Museum holds the most extensive, nationally significant collection of woodworking tools in Canada. We house a large climate controlled vault and laboratory on site at the MacLachlan.

Our collection is directly tied to our mission as a museum:

To cultivate and foster the appreciation and understanding of the role of wood and woodworking technology in the development of Canada. This shall be accomplished through conducting and encouraging research, collecting, preserving and interpreting woodworking tools and artifacts made by their use.
