Year-round guided tours of this National Historic Site – the last operating double-decker theatre in the world – are 90 minutes long and recount the history and restoration of the complex. Visit the original and new lobbies, the elegant Elgin Theatre and the unique and whimsical Winter Garden Theatre, and view samples from the world’s largest collection of vaudeville scenery. As well, a backstage exhibit housing the Winter Garden’s original Simplex Silent Film Projector and a dressing room containing artifacts from the time period are on view.
