Last year we participate for the first time and had a chance to experience the Provincial Archives and were very impressed with the entire tour.     Lots of demonstrations and artefacts to take in as well as a tour of the basement where we were shown how document restoration takes place.    We also checked out Memorial Hall, The Observatory and the Sir Howard Douglas Hall during our afternoon out!    

Individual guided tour times can be found in the brochure.    Event runs from 1pm to 4pm!
