Uncover the stories of Toronto’s railways!
The Toronto Railway Museum Outdoor Tour explores how Toronto’s railways shaped the social landscape of the city since their introduction in the early 1800s. How were Toronto’s oldest communities impacted by the development of the railways? What stories do our train cars tell? Join us to find out!
Tours are in-depth, guided walking tours that take visitors around the museum grounds and tour length is approximately 30 minutes.
Guided tours take place entirely outdoors and do not enter inside the train cars or railway buildings as per Stage 1 of the Ontario reopening plan. Masks are mandatory throughout the duration of the guided tour and groups should maintain a physical distance of 2 metres from other visitors and TRM staff. All guided tour tickets must be pre-booked in advance. Timed ticketing will accommodate reduced visitor numbers and physical distancing. Tours run 4 times daily!
For more information on our reopening health and safety protocols, please visit our website.
Due to limited capacity, please arrive 5 minutes prior to your scheduled tour time. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate latecomers. Tour groups will meet in front of the Toronto Railway Museum (Stall 17 of the John Street Roundhouse). Look for the “Tour Meets Here” sign and the yellow doors.
