Themed Tours

Join us for a 45 minute in-person walking tour of the museum.  Book a tour time for up to 9 people in your social bubble.  A variety of themes to choose from seasonally:

Anne in Pickering ~ People the world over have fallen in love with L.M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables.  And our museum has been the film location for movies and television shows about the books.  What were adoption, life on a struggling farm, and views on education for women really like for Canadians like Anne?  We'll explore parts of the books and screen adaptations alongside real life in this 45 minute tour.

Glad Rags and Giggle Juice ~ Step back into the 1920s when glad rags were party clothes and giggle juice was illegal booze.  Find out how the locals were dealing with prohibition, what they were doing for fun (and how they got their hands on giggle juice), and how Pickering's Bert Harvey was contributing to the music scene in North America.

History Detective ~ With your Museum Interpreter's help, complete a series of riddles, hidden object challenges, and other puzzles in order to fill your bingo card as you journey through a few of the museum's buildings.  Bring your cell phone to take plenty of selfies on your journey!  This fun theme is designed specifically for children and families.

Pickering's Past ~ From First Nations to the initial influx of American settlers, explore Pickering's roots!  Find out what it was like to start all over in a new land.  Your Museum Interpreter can adapt and customize to meet your group's needs and interests!

Hallowe'en ~ Today we put a carved pumpkin on the porch, dress up and trick or treat for candy, but Hallowe'en has deep roots.  Come out and learn why we make jack'o'lanterns, wear costumes and masks, and about more of the customs related to October 31.  Come in costume if you like!  Available only in October.

Holiday ~ Come out and discover the seasonal beliefs of the First Nations Little Spirit Moon, early Scottish and Welsh settlers, and the Victorians who brought us many of the traditions we celebrate at Christmas. Available starting late November. 

Themed tours must be booked in advance.  Register your group of up to 9 people for $60 plus tax (only one registration is required per group). You must choose your tour theme as part of registration process.  

Durham residents can register online through the links below using an existing account or by setting up an account.  If you live outside of Durham please call the museum at 905.683.8401 for registration assistance.  Due to current COVID protocols tickets are not currently available to Toronto and Peel residents.

Izzy and the Mystery at the Mill

10-year old Izzy is the daughter of local constable, Charles Hadley.  Set in 1830s Pickering, this drive-thru mystery experience is specifically for children (and their parents and grandparents).  From your car, work together to help Izzy find clues to solve the mystery.  In this first of a series, Mr. Peak's freshly ground grain has gone missing at the local mill.  It needs to be loaded on the next ship leaving the harbour!  Can you help Izzy solve the mystery in time?

The program is done entirely from your vehicle.  Price is $20 per vehicle , not per person.  You only need to register once for the vehicle, no need to register the passengers.
