For 2019 the Stratford Perth Museum is offering our Tours and Talks package, along with an option for a box lunch from Sirkel Foods in Stratford.
Package One: Museum Tour + Historical Talk:
• 90 minutes
• Capacity: 45 people
• $15 per person (plus tax)
Includes a full guided tour of all the museum’s exhibits, plus choose one of three historical talks.
Historical Talk options:
Based on three of our most popular exhibits, each talk provides an in-depth perspective.
Justin Bieber: Steps to Stardom
Learn about Justin’s early life growing up in Stratford, and his meteoric rise to international fame and success. This talk tells the story of the Stratford native’s career from those early years - busking in Stratford and performing in local talent shows - to the largest venues and stages in the world.
Stratford Festival: Such Stuff As Dreams…
How did the Stratford Festival go from dream to reality? This talk discusses the plots, the plans, the people and the plays that transformed Stratford from a railway hub to the city that hosts North America’s largest classical repertory theatre company.
Enjoy a guided walk through our trails system that features 15 story boards that tell the history of Stratford and Perth County. On this walk, which is under a kilometre in length, you will learn about the first inhabitants, the European settlers, industry, the role of rail, war time commitments and government representation - and the role each played. (Weather permitting - we have an inclement weather alternative indoors.)
Catered Lunch Option:
Museum Tour + Historical Talk + Box Lunch:
$29 per person (plus tax)
box lunch provided by Stratford’s Sirkel Foods. Includes soft drink/water.
