Live History Theatre
Saturday July 1st, 6pm - New Show!

It’s almost closing time at The Railway Station when you run into a strange figure, dressed in period clothes and seeming confused. The mysterious character, identifying only as Circa, is horrified to discover they are in the modern era, and many of things they remember and love are now behind glass. They have no recollection of who they are, or how they got there. Only items from the past seem to trigger memories and stories about their identity. Stay with Circa for anecdotes from the main exhibit’s time period, and travel through other exhibits, searching for clues. Make sure to avoid the security guard at closing time in order to help Circa find their identity; the ultimate treasure.

Railroaders’ Tour of Barry’s Bay

Bring your railroading essentials: walking shoes, hat, sunscreen, umbrella – and a taste for adventure!
