Pagoda Kicks off its 100th year of Providing Visitor Information

The Pagoda Tourist Information Center opens for the summer season today, June 8th. Summer hours are Tuesday to Saturday from 10 AM to 6 PM daily.

The Pagoda turns 100 years old in 2010 and is the longest continually operating tourism information centre in Canada. One hundred years ago, the Port Arthur Board of Trade saw fit to build and operate a tourism information centre adjacent to the CN Rail Station, providing visitors to the City a place to gather information. With construction started in 1909 the centre opened in February 2010.

As part of Tourism week and our celebration of this centre and its milestone, join us on Friday June 11 from 11 AM to 3 PM for cake and coffee at the centre, look at some antique cars on display and re acquaint yourself with this spectacular piece of Thunder Bay's historical architecture.
