Virtually visit the Huron Historic Gaol by night during its temporary closure! The cells are dark, the sheets are on the artifacts & staff are on hand to shine a light and lift the covers to show you this national historic site behind the scenes on Historic Places Day. 

At 8:30: Join us on the Museum’s Facebook Live for a sneak preview tour of the this historic building and its unique panopticon design. See into the cells and courtyards and the gaoler’s living quarters. 


At 9:00 pm: Join us online for a Q& A with the Curator of Engagement & Dialogue from inside the gaol. Is this place haunted? Why do you spell jail with a g? Did anyone escape? Ask an expert about almost 180 years of history!
