Revellers of all ages are invited to experience 50 days of holiday-themed programs and events at the City’s 10 Toronto History Museums.
“The City’s museums are capturing the festive spirit this holiday season by offering numerous food, shopping and social experiences in historic spaces,” said Mayor John Tory. “I encourage everyone to enjoy these family events throughout the city.”
