Casa Loma, Toronto

4.1
#1 of 1,489 in Museums in Canada
Castle Specialty Museum
Constructed at the beginning of the 20th century in the Gothic Revival style, Casa Loma represents the city's only castle. The midtown landmark once served as the formal residence of financier Henry Mill Pellat, known for helping bring hydroelectric power to Toronto. Originally the largest private home in Canada, the grandiose 98-room castle now acts as a museum, often used for wedding ceremonies and movie shoots. Choose between several themed guided tours, or pick up a digital audio guide at the entrance and explore the castle and gardens on your own.

  • Wonderful evening on a summer night. The gardens were pretty and the food was just okay. Be sure to get there early for the best seats!  more »
  • The building is very well maintained both inside and out. The rooms each are decorated in style, to that era and the view from the balcony and the roof is breath taking. The climb to the roof top is v...  more »
  • Nothing beats the view from the gardens at the castle overlooking Toronto as the sun sets, except possibly being there for Music in the Gardens. That said make a reservation or get there early and din...  more »

  • A must see! So decadent and so big! You should spend the day there because there is so many different things to see. You can eat or drink at their fast food restaurant for a reasonable price. An amazing view from there to the city, extraordinary decoration, furniture and themed areas. 98 rooms! Can you imagine that? The indoor garden, the library, the towers (you can take the stiff stairs and visit it all, even get out), the dining rooms, the staff rooms, the stables, the tunnel to get there... everything can be seen and it is really worth it!
  • Overall not bad. The exterior of the home is very interesting. The interior had some rooms with a lot of details, while others were not as interesting. It would be nice to have an actual guide who can answer questions you have. It is just a handset that they recorded info on about each room. This is why I didn't give it 5 stars. It seems like they could have live tour guides that would offer more detail and be able to answer questions you have. Many other old estate homes do this, so this is where it fell a bit short.
  • Went with the family on Canada day and had a great time! They Had crafts, a bounce house and horses set up in the stables for the kids. The castle is also GIANT. I had no idea. It never ends. I've done tours of mansion before but never toured one this large. Apparently it's the largest full size castle in North America. The basement has a old swimming pool that's been converted into a theatre (?!) So neat! The grounds are gorgeous and prestine. All staff were so friendly and helpful. I'll definitely be back again! Highly recommend!
  • This is one of my favourite places in Toronto due to its intriguing history and impressive architecture. Wear comfortable shoes because it will take at least 2 hours. An excellent place to visit w family/friends and it's worth the $. I would love to go there again in summer! What more can I say? The place speaks for itself.
  • Excellent tour! Phone speakers were perfect for informing visitors of the history of the castle. The maps were very helpful keeping track of all the rooms. Thoroughly enjoyed climbing up to the tower. Beautiful grounds. Wish more flowers had names on them.
