Join the Thunder Bay Museum as we launch our 2016 Historical Walking Tours. This year, along with the very popular Port Arthur Tours that ran previously, we are also adding the new Fort William Tour. Learn some fascinating aspects of local history; all you have to do is walk.

The tours are approximately 1.5km and should last about 90 minutes. Be sure to dress appropriately. These tours welcome participants of all ages, but some of the content may not be suitable for small children. Parental discretion is advised.

Admission for the tours is $5 per person. For tickets, dates, and more information click the links below or call the Museum at 807-623-0801.

Private tours are also available to interested groups.

The stories behind the stories of downtown Port Arthur

Who was Oliver Prevost and why did he die? Why does the second floor of the Prince Arthur Hotel sometimes smell like cigar smoke? How did the Queen’s Hotel meet its untimely end?
