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. To visit Spadina Museum on your trip to Toronto, use our Toronto itinerary maker.

  • Inspires and soothes. Here for the "Music in the Orchard" series. Amazing !!
  • Excellent tour guide and a hidden gem. Well worth the small entrance fee.
  • WONDERFUL service, very informative and polite staff, both indoor and outdoor areas are clean and visually appealing
  • Nice guided tour. I think to see the upper floors you have to be on a guided tour which happens at various times throughout the day. The basement has the entrance, a lovely gift shop and a few exhibits.
  • Amazing tour for great price. I was going to go to casa loma but the prices were high and the lines too long. I went here and never regretted it. The garden is filled with beautiful flowers, and the house is perfect.
