Summer Teas at the Oshawa Museum

Enjoy a low tea in the garden with the Oshawa Community Museum’s summer Victorian Teas. Whether English Breakfast, Earl Grey or Peppermint, guests of the museum select a tea of their choice, along with some light refreshments and get to spend a couple of hours enjoying their tea in the museum’s Victorian garden. When tea time comes to an end, guests are encouraged to take a tour of the museum from a costumed guide.
