Museum Classroom: Virtual Tours and Programs

St. Catharines Museum is presenting free virtual tours and programs!

The St. Catharines Museum and Welland Canals Centre is happy to offer free, private, booked virtual school and educational programs and tours.

Our engaging and experienced staff are ready to take your students on a virtual tour of our permanent galleries or behind-the-scenes in our Museum’s collection. Other fun and exciting opportunities involve programs like The Travelling Museum and Jr. Engineers, which have been modified slightly to ensure enjoyment for all your students learning from home. These experiences can either be live on your preferred platform of choice, or custom pre-recorded videos.

We’re also happy to tackle any local history topics you and your students might have an interest in, including a virtual walking tour of St. Paul Street or a virtual walking tour of the city’s historic architecture.
