Collection Tours

A rare treat! You are invited on a guided tour of the artifact storage building to admire the Museum's extensive collection, not usually accessible to the public. See artifacts like a 1949 Rolls Royce, a Popemobile, the 1939 McLaughlin-Buick from King George VI's Royal tour and the 1927 Governor General's railway cars used during that same visit.

Attendance is limited so please register upon arrival at the information desk in the main lobby.
