Go behind bars at the Huron Historic Gaol’s Selfie Station

Canada Historic Places Days are a national celebration of our country’s historic places hosted each year by the National Trust of Canada. While historic sites, including the Museum and Gaol, remain temporarily closed, you can still celebrate and support these sites by getting creative with your digital selfie. Simply visit, find the Museum or Gaol, and upload your selfie which will be placed on virtual backgrounds from each of the sites. You can also have fun recreating a historic photo from the Museum’s collection, or share a throwback from one of your pre-pandemic visits to our sites! Of course, you can also visit the Huron Historic Gaol to take a selfie at our new selfie station – it is found outside the Gloucester Terrace entrance and is open all the time! To find inspiration for your selfies from the Museum’s virtual collection and historic photos, visit or visit Selfie Contest – Historic Places Days .
