The Archives of Ontario maintains an exciting travelling exhibits loan program that
showcases the Archives' holdings in a variety of subject-based exhibits. These exhibits
are available free of charge to any institution that wishes to borrow them. The
exhibits enable thousands of people from around the province to view selections
from the Archives' holdings in an informative and accessible format.
There are currently 12 exhibits circulating among heritage, cultural, and educational institutions throughout Ontario. Current exhibits available for loan are shown below.

All of the exhibits have been produced on easy to erect panels that are approximately 2' by 7' in size. The exhibits range from three to five panels.
The length of time the exhibits can be borrowed can range from one to three months. The Archives of Ontario, however, will consider longer or shorter loan periods depending on the needs of the host institution or event.
