The City of Thunder Bay Archives will be holding public tours to celebrate Archives Awareness Week. Anyone who is interested in a behind-the-scenes look at this institution and its work is invited to visit during the week of April 6-9, between 11 am and 2 pm.

Items on display will include those highlighting the work of the Fire Departments and the Emergency Measures Organization, and some of our oldest records.


Tours will be held every half hour beginning at 11 am with the last tour held at 1:30 pm each day. Staff will lead you through parts of the facility not normally open to the public, present exhibits of historic material, and answer questions.

Visitors to the City Archives are welcome at any time.
