Virtual Museum Lecture Series via Podcast

We are thrilled to bring our hit Virtual Museum Lecture Series to the podcast. Now, with over 30 lectures on YouTube, we’re so happy to bring the lecture audio to the podcast format so that more of you can enjoy these fascinating stories and join in on the historical adventures.

Coming up this winter, we’ll release the audio for lectures on topics such as the history of the largest cemetery here in Niagara, Ontario’s racially segregated schools, the Third Welland Canal, and much more.

More lectures are headed your way this winter over on YouTube. You can join in Live! or catch the lectures our playlist afterwards. Subscribe to our YouTube Channel – you’ll find us at St. Catharines Museum – so you don’t miss any of the fun. For more information on the lecture series, the impressive guest list, and lecture topics please visit stcatharinesmuseum.ca.

Today’s lecture features Adrian Petry, visitor services coordinator here at the Museum. In this presentation, he looks at the research that goes into creating our annual Guided Spirit Walks at Victoria Lawn Cemetery, and how dark tourism like ghost walks have influenced the practice public history and the public’s imagination of historical personalities.
