Year Round

#Museum2U Guest Speaker Presentations

Let us share the magic of our local history with you and your group through an entertaining, interactive presentation.  We invite you to come to the Pickering Museum Village or have our staff come to you!  Presentations can be provided in classrooms, dining halls, lounges, or gymnasiums.  During COVID-19 we can also come to you virtually!  Contact us at 905.683.8401 or PMVbookings@pickering.ca to book your presentation.

 

Presentations are 1 hour in length.  Virtual presentations cost $75.  In person presentations cost $135.  Mileage costs will apply for locations outside of Pickering.

 

The following will provide you with a brief description of each program or presentation:

 

Bonnets and Daycaps and Hats:  Oh My!
The museum's Costumer will take you on a slide show tour of the various kinds of headgear worn by women and men in the nineteenth and early twentieth century.  As well as discussing hats, she will also look at hairstyles since the two are closely related.
Funeral Follies
We put the fun in funerals... no, seriously!  Learn the origins of, "saved by the bell", why we still often wear black, why mirrors and clocks were shrouded, the beginning of the funeral parlour, and the mysteries of mortuary photographs and hair jewelry.  Our Interpreter will come dressed in full Victorian mourning attire to discuss the stages of mourning, along with our slide show.  You'll likely laugh, but you won't cry.
Heritage Gardening
Our Interpreter will take you on a slide show tour of our many authentic heritage gardens, discussing the development of rural gardens in Upper Canada from survival gardens to the more leisured pursuit of ornamental plantings.
Rural Runway 1810-1910
We'll take you on a clothing journey through time.  Compare your personal style with the fashions of the 19th and early 20th centuries as PMV's Costumer shares images and vintage clothing samples as she discusses changing men's and women's styles over time, and what was happening in the world to cause the change of fashion.
Victorians' Secrets:  An OVERview of UNDERwear
Curious about what made the Civil War era skirt stand our like a bell?  Or how the giant bustle is supported?  Our Costumer will reveal all (in a slide show) the secrets of just how ladies achieved their silhouettes in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
 Guided Tours 2022

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

Themes

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 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. 

 

Guided tours must be booked a week in advance.  Register your group of up to 9 people for $60 plus tax. You must choose your tour theme as part of registration process.
