Book a Tour

We offer compelling tours of our centre and exhibits as well as in-depth neighborhood walking tours.

 

WAHC Tour

School groups, retirees, community and union groups are encouraged to book a guided tour of our exhibits. A guide will take you through the centre and in an interactive and engaging way will tell you about the history of Hamilton labour, working in a factory, health and safety legislation, office work and machinery and the contemporary exhibits in our Main and Community Galleries. This is a great way to learn and further explore the issues related to the exhibits.
