Workers Arts & Heritage Centre
51 Stuart Street, Hamilton, Ontario L8L 1B5
Come explore Custom House, the Workers Arts & Heritage Centre’s historic home, and experience some special drop-in programs as part of Doors Open Hamilton 2018.

Come and learn about the role of WAHC, Canada’s only national workers’ history museum and art gallery, in celebrating and honouring the role of the labour and social movements and advocating for a fair and just society. View our permanent exhibits on workers’ history in Hamilton, and Ontario.

Interactive activities for children will include animation of the operational knitting machine and a workers’ history button making station. In addition, come and experience our Worker’s City app at an interactive station in the main gallery. This app and website, launched in 2016, presents the rich working and industrial past of Hamiltonians in all its breadth – at home, in the workplace, in the community.

Also join us for two program offerings over the weekend:

Saturday, May 5th | 10:30 am – Noon
