Markham Museum is a 25-acre (10 ha) open-air museum in Markham, Ontario. It is dedicated to the preservation of old buildings and artifacts from Markham's past. The site features nearly 30 buildings: houses, barns, sheds, a train station, a school, a general store, a church, a blacksmith, a harness shop, a saw mill, a cider mill, and many more. One of the oldest buildings is the Hoover House, built in 1824 by a Mennonite family who were originally from Pennsylvania.
All of the historic buildings were moved to the site from other places around Markham with the exception of the Mount Joy School.
