McLaughin Day Walking Tour

  • Canadian Automotive Museum 99 Simcoe St. South Oshawa, ON L1H 4G7 Canada (map)

Join us for a special downtown Oshawa walking tour combined with the museum's collection of vehicles built in Oshawa in honour of McLaughlin Day (Civic Holiday). Oshawa has been home to the McLaughlin Carriage Company, McLaughlin Motor Company, and General Motors of Canada, but today only a few remnants of the city’s former industrial past remain in the downtown core. The tour will trace the history of the cars manufactured over the last 100+ years in Oshawa such as McLaughlin-Buicks, Oldsmobiles and Chevrolets. Expert guides will explore the streetscape and bring to life the people and places that made Oshawa “Canada’s Motor City.”

This event is included with regular museum admission, members free.
