In 1976, Brandon Museum Inc., a non-profit organization took over the building and spent two years restoring the building and planning exhibits. In 1978, the Museum, named in honour of Mr. Thomas Mayne Daly, was officially opened to the public. 

There have been several changes to the Museum over the years.  A general store called Mutter Brothers was moved into an addition built during the Maples period. The Victorian Garden has been added for the publics enjoyment and is available for rent. An archives on the third floor named the Magnacca Research Center in honour of Mayor Magnacca holds unique photographs of Brandon’s Early Years.

Under the direction of the Brandon Museum Inc. Board of Directors Daly House has become a welcoming place for the community to find out about the community’s history or to gather and share crafts, and traditions. With changing historical exhibitions, The Daly House is a good place to visit - and more than once a year!
