This Women’s History Month, HerStory celebrates the lives of empowering, resilient and strong women who have played a significant role in Toronto’s past, present and future.


Explore the city with HistoricTO, a cultural experience connecting local communities through diverse perspectives. Join time-ticketed guided tours or take a self-guided neighbourhood tour.


Experience Toronto’s many stories through the Awakenings program, a series of art projects created within Toronto History Museums by Black, Indigenous and artists of colour, operating under the principles of anti-oppression, anti-colonialism, and anti-racism.

Explore an unseen view. Awaken a new perspective. Join the conversation. Learn more below and view the full Awakenings program on YouTube.
