The Markham Museum always has something going on, it is a nice place to visit and go for a stroll and see all the heritage buildings that are located at the back. Great for pictures and learn about history from the pioneer times.

We were given a knowledgeable tour of their Historical Village. It was especially interesting to us as we were in Markam to pay our respects to our Hiltz Ancestors.
