Intrigue. Hidden Tales. Lost History.
The “wild west” history of Fort William
Who was Bliss Gordon and why was he hanged? Was Peter McKellar’s dinosaur the ‘real McCoy’? Why was Mag Matthews arrested 23 times but never incarcerated?
Join the Thunder Bay Museum as we launch our 2018 Historical Walking Tours. This year, along with the very popular Port Arthur and Fort William Tours and the Court St. tour, we will be adding a new tour in Westfort later in the summer. Also, we are adding in dog-friendly tours, look for the “dog-friendly” label and then bring your four-legged friends along! 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, there are limited tickets. For tickets, dates, and more information click the links below or call the Museum at 807-623-0801. Tickets must be purchased in advance of the event.
Private tours are also available to interested groups.
