Shipping & Returns

Shipping Policy:

Please note that shipping is available to only one address per order. We do not ship to P.O. boxes or APO/FPO addresses. We reserve the right to choose the method of shipment (e.g. UPS, FedX, Canada Post, etc.). Shipping is available to most destinations within Canada, the U.S. and major international locations. Delivery times are not guaranteed and may be impacted by weather, holidays, and other factors. In the event of any shipping delays, the City will use its best efforts to notify you by email. The Peterborough Museum & Archives ("PMA") will notify you if any item cannot be shipped within 30 days, at which point you have the option to wait until the item becomes available or cancel your order. Some heavy or bulky items may require additional shipping charges. We will obtain your consent to pay any additional shipping charges prior to shipping. Shipping rates are calculated based on the weight and dimensions of the order and its destination. To determine shipping rates, simply begin the checkout process. Here you can select the shipping service you want and the corresponding charge.
