What we are doing and why?
As part of the TTC’s commitment to safety and modernization, Museum Station (Line 1) will be getting a new second exit/entrance, and elevators to improve customer safety, accessibility and convenience by 2024*.

The Second Exit/Entrance will be constructed on the north end of Queen’s Park Circle. Elevator construction and structural rehabilitation will take place at the existing entrances to Museum Station on Queen’s Park.
