  • These houses and barns were moved here from all around Scarborough. It is neat to see how people lived just a hundred years ago.  more »
  • This museum is located within the Thompson Park. It is nice for the whole family to take a guided tour of the house and learn about the pioneers and their life. They also have camps that children will...  more »

  • Welcome To The Scarborough Museum Out In Toronto, Ontario Canada! I had a very detailed tour just the other day and I learned a heck of a lot. During my tour, I visited four (4) buildings which include the McCowan Log House in which William McCowan lived there with his mother and sister and this Log House was built around the 1830's. The Cornell House was owned by Charles and Matilda Cornell where they lived there with their eight (8) children and the house was built in 1858. The Hough Carriage Works was where Henry Hough worked which involved anything having to do with Wheels. Lastly, there is the Kennedy Gallery which is a multi-use room used for various activities and events and Right Now they are hosting an Art Exhibit put on by the students of one (1) of the local schools. I want to personally Thank Natalie for giving ME a Wonderful Tour back on Friday, January 12, 2018. Sincerely yours, Howard Paul Shore Visitor Executive, Volunteer Writer For Google And Tripadvisor Websites /HPS
  • Small but great place to visit with family. The staff very friendly! Playground and park.good for kids. Free parking available!
  • Enjoyed the tour! It is a small exhibit of 2 historic style houses, so tours seem to occur spontaneously, when one shows up.
  • Very interesting piece of history.
  • Just attended the museum's Desserts by Lamplight holiday event and it was just lovely. So nice to see this old house lit the way it would have been back in the day and with period Christmas decorations and utterly fantastic desserts -- plus live music from a saxophone quartet! Such a great night out! (Loved the log cabin, by the way.)
