Spadina Museum, Toronto

4.5
Focused on bringing its guests into the 1920s and 1930s, Spadina Museum shows visitors how life in those decades changed the culture of Toronto. Once you step into the house, you'll feel like you've been transported to the interwar period in Toronto. Take a guided tour of the museum to have an expert explain the artifacts, furnishings, and historical items in an engaging manner. Once you're finished with the tour, step outside into the 2.4 ha (6 acres) of gardens set on the estate.

  • Never know that there was such a building until I visited. The guided tour was very detailed. Although it is located in the city, I managed to park for free in the street, legally. Otherwise, it would have costed me at least $10
  • This is a museum of quite manageable size. Our guide was very knowledgeable and was able to give us a real feel for what life was like for the family in this house
  • This more modest yet still grand dwelling, placed in the shadow of the palatial Casa Loma, is a wonderful place to visit on a beautiful day when the gardens are in full bloom. The interior is also worth a visit, but there is a fee to enter. It is fun to see how people lived in the recent past, with the interior reflecting the era of the early 1900's. They seem to have some fun events periodically as well. The gardens are breathtaking (and free on the day we were there, although I think you can also pay for tours of the grounds) to wander around, with flowers and a vegetable garden. So beautiful! Great for photographers!
  • $9 entry and very good tour. Lovely house and older than Casa Loma.
  • A must see! A great look into Toronto life of the rich at the turn of the century.
