About

Get a glimpse into the lives of the many diverse people who rode Tram Car 1220 for work and pleasure, including the charming, real-life love story between a tram worker and a regular Steveston rider. The Interurban Trams connected Richmond to markets, and shopping and entertainment in Vancouver from 1905 to 1958.

Richmond Stories is a collection of 10 short videos that bring Richmond's history to life through storytelling, archival photos, and modern videography.

Richmond Museum

The Richmond Museum is operated collaboratively by the Richmond Museum Society and City of Richmond. The Museum’s vision is to make the history of Richmond relevant, engaging and accessible.

To support this vision, the Museum collects, documents, researches, preserves, exhibits and interprets objects of historical and cultural significance to the development and history of Richmond.

As storytellers, collectors and educators, our goal is to create moments of wonder and understanding. Our exhibitions tell the many fascinating stories of Richmond; our collections are windows into how we live, past and present; our education programs open minds, young and old; and our work inspires action for a healthy community and planet.
