Visit the Steveston Tram on Family Day weekend (February 17th to 20th) for the official launch of a new family-friendly exhibit. Open 12-4pm. Admission is free.
Explore the interactive displays, including a light up map that traces the routes of the historic Interurban tram. See the new LEGO model of Tram Car 1220 and the Steveston Tram Barn, by local LEGO creator Peter Grant.
Kids will enjoy activities including a Tram Conductor dress-up corner, LEGO building corner and transportation-themed craft and reading area.
Look for the return of the Junior Conductor program, where kids receive a punch card to record their visits and earn prizes.
Lots to explore and learn for tram lovers of all ages!
Also premiering as part of the exhibit, is the new Richmond Stories short video about the history of the Tram in Steveston. Viewers can 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 video will also be available for viewing online on the City of Richmond’s YouTube Channel.
