Brockville Museum Program

Historical Walking Tours
Until August 23, 2019

Trials and royal pick-pockets or shipwrecks and factory-explosions, the Brockville Museum is offering two distinct historical walking tours around Downtown Brockville this summer that are sure to entertain and delight audiences looking to explore some of Brockville's unique and lesser-known history.

Our popular "Brockville's Criminal Past" walking tour is back for a 5th season. Join us on this tour to explore some darker stories, including that of Canada’s largest bank heists, the twisted tale of the last man hanged in Brockville, and discover exactly what happened to John Simpson’s skin. (Not recommended for children).

New for 2019 is "Brockville's Historic Waterfront" walking tour, which explores the changing landscape of Brockville's much loved waterfront, from shipwrecks to an atomic lighthouse, and factories to million dollar yachts. Those seeking a more general history of Brockville's history and development will enjoy this tour that meanders along Brockville's beautiful waterfront.

Both tours offer a people-focused look at the history of Ontario's oldest incorporated town and are delivered by our well-trained and dynamic guides. Tours go rain or shine and include about 90 minutes of walking through Brockville's historic downtown. 

Our tours are capped at 20 to ensure the best experience for our guests, so please book your spot early. Tickets can be purchased in advance online through Snap'd Tix, or in person at the Brockville Museum.

Please note designated times for tour options and plan accordingly:
--> Criminal Past: Thursdays at 3pm & Fridays at 7pm
--> Historic Waterfront: Thursdays at 7pm & Fridays at 3pm
