As of May 1, general admission is permanently free at all 10 Toronto History Museums. Some exhibitions and events may carry a separate charge where noted. Zion Schoolhouse is open for special events and private bookings.

Free live performances and in-person installations are happening May to July at various Toronto History Museums locations. More information about performances at Zion Schoolhouse available soon.

Behind the worn green doors of this museum is a school frozen in time. The wooden desks, still carved with messages from the past and names of former students, sit empty waiting for you.

Zion Schoolhouse offers visitors a chance to experience a day at school circa 1910. Imagine what it’s like to take class not only with your friends, but every kid in the neighbourhood including all your siblings.

Schoolchildren and teachers alike can see what’s changed and what’s stayed the same in the last 110 years of education in Toronto. Immerse yourself in a day of education and fun at this hidden gem in the north-end of the city.

Open for private bookings and special events. Visit us during Doors Open Toronto on May 28 and 29, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
