Walking tours reveal Steveston’s dark side
26 July 2018
Unearth Steveston’s dark and muddy past as you travel back in time on a Steveston Museum’s guided one hour walking tour in August and September.
Visitors of all ages will enjoy the Steveston Stories tour as they tread through time to discover the fascinating people, events and places that shaped Steveston. Visitors who are 15 years or older can peel back the genteel façade of modern Steveston to reveal a history of drinking, gambling and murder on the Murder, Mayhem and Morality in Old Steveston tour.
A costumed interpreter will guide visitors through historic Steveston, leaving from the Steveston Museum (3811 Moncton Street). The hour-long tours are offered on Saturdays in August and September with Steveston Stories departing at 1 p.m. and Murder Mayhem and Morality in Old Steveston at 3 p.m.
Tickets are $5 per tour. Children under 12 years old are free when accompanied by a paying adult (maximum two children per adult). Book in advance, as spaces are limited. Purchase tickets at the Tourism Richmond Visitor Centre at the Steveston Museum (3811 Moncton Street) or by calling the Visitor Centre at 604-271-8280.
