Museum in the Streets

Museum in the Streets

Our Museum in the Streets program features three bilingual heritage-discovery walks for the benefit of Lake Street residents and visitors. These free walking tours foster a sense of historical identity while educating, encouraging preservation of local historic sites, and promoting knowledge of the stories, events, and traditions of Lake Street.

Each walking tour includes a large plaque with a map that highlights the area's historical locations and clarifies where the visitor is in relation to other area destinations. There is also a brochure that outlines the various historical sites along with a series of panels throughout the corridor that invites participants to discover Lake Street’s unique story at their own pace, over the course of an afternoon or through return visits.
