Annual Lamplight Tour at Oshawa Museum


Dec 1, 2018
6:00 PM until 8:00 PM


The Lamplight tour is a time-honoured tradition at the Oshawa Museum. Our signature event allows visitors young and old to tour through the Museum homes that we decorate to reflect a Victorian Christmas. Oil lamps provide the only light in Henry House and looks just as the Henry family would have lit their home back in the 1800’s. Victorian style is everywhere – clothing, music, food, and gift ideas!

Be sure to leave enough time for photos with Father Christmas! Museum photographers will be on hand in the Drive Shed by Henry House to snap pics and post them on Facebook where you can share with family and friends.

Visitors will also see Robinson House and its two latest exhibits, Community Health in the 20th Century: An Oshawa Perspective and A Carrying Place: Oshawa’s Indigenous Story, while still experiencing some holiday flare! New this year is our Lamplight Mini Market in Robinson House. Featured artisans include Jenny’s Goods, Rock Jewelry Designs and Krafts by Kirby. 

Stop into Guy House where you can enjoy entertainment from Galiah Gears & Friends – putting a steampunk twist on our Victorian Christmas! Cider, hot chocolate and popcorn are available; dress up like a Victorian and shop in our gift shop!

Join us for all of the festivities on Saturday, December 1, 2018 from 6 – 8 pm. Tickets are $5 per person and can be purchased online at or at any of the Museum homes that night.
