Come walk the California Migration Museum’s new immersive Castro tour with founder and director Katy Long, for a behind-the-scenes look at our new immersive audio history walks, Migrant Footsteps.
One of a series of tours through Chinatown, Castro and the Mission, each narrated by a local musician with a connection to each neighborhood – Alex Wong, IDHAZ and La Doña – our 45 minute tours combine music, archive and augmented reality alongside pop-up installations to create an immersive, multi-sensory walk through history.
In At Home in the Castro?, we hear from a gay pioneer who first arrived in Eureka Valley in 1957 and watched the neighborhood transform into a queer homeland.
You’ll need to download our Migrant Footsteps app before joining the tour, and come with a pair of headphones. For this event, Katy — the founder and director of the museum — will walk with you, diving further into the city’s amazing migration history.
