On weekends during Culture Days, discover the stories behind the restoration of Tram Car 1220 to its original brilliance. Every weekend there will be an art project or scavenger hunt related to the tram that children can create and take home. Please note: we will be closed to the public on Saturday, September 30.

On Saturday, October 7, the vintage BC Transit Museum bus will be parked near the Steveston Tram. Explore both Tram Car 1220 and the vintage bus and discover why the trams stopped running and what came next in Richmond. Then enjoy additional family activities inspired by the Tram's restoration.
