Welcome to Markham!
Located just north of Toronto Ontario, Canada, the City of Markham is a vibrant municipality of more than 353,000.
Experience our unique cultural attractions, stroll through our award-winning heritage districts in Unionville, Thornhill and Markham villages, or enjoy our year-round activities: world class theatre, the nationally acclaimed Varley Art Gallery, or walk back in time at Markham's 25-acre heritage museum.
Markham is Canada's most ethnically diverse community - a wonderful place for everyone to live, work and play!
International Museum Day
May 18, 2019 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Location: Markham Museum, 9350 Markham Road
Free - Open to the public
Celebrate International Museum Day with free admission at Markham Museum! Take this opportunity to participate in our family drop-in activities and enjoy our current exhibition, Geared for Growing, before it leaves the Museum for good. Families will explore Markham Museum on our GeoTour and participate in a special International Museum Day themed Scavenger Hunt. With the help of staff, families will learn a little bit about artifacts and biofacts, and even create a special bracelet to help keep you safe in the sun.
Join Parks Canada's Learn-To Camp team as they teach families all about camping - from packing, to pitching a tent! EmersonGrow will be showing off the wonders of photobiology, and how light helps us grow plants.
Please note that there will be no regular tours during the event.
