Great to see how our Public Broadcaster operates. They also have a museum on the ground floor.

I think the CBC building is often overlooked by Canadian and international tourists in Toronto, alike. But it really is a gem. There is a small (and free) museum about Canadian broadcasting history on the main floor of the building that includes several interactive exhibits and bits of Canadiana that all Canadians growing up watching or listening to CBC will...

Living close allows for the opportunity to visit frequently. Visited the Strombo show a number of times, always entertaining. Try it

Checked this place out as a friend of mine from Elkridge, Maryland wanted to get some gifts at the Gift Shop. Have been to this building both for a personalized tour by a friend who worked here plus a taping of the Royal Canadian Air Farce. Nice to see everything under one roof compared to the 'old days" were the... More

It feels iconic to be in there. Take in some of the shows. I've enjoyed becoming a part of some of the audiences.

Any time I drive down University Ave. and going home to the suburbs of west Toronto, I aways drive past this building on Front Street. This building finally came together after years and years about talking it by the "Mother Corporation". Got a personalize tour of this place when it first opened up by a friend of mine,who worked for... More

I visited the free museum while waiting to be in the audience for the hour. I thought it was great, the set up had lots to view from old fashioned microphones, cameras and props. Lots of descriptions beside almost all the iteams on display. I loved the tickle trunk set up. It was my favorite display. If you're in the... More

Alright, so the CBC building is nothing too special. They used to give behind the scenes tours which were probably worthwhile, but no more. Which means this tourist stop is little more than a "hey, there's the CBC building" moment. However, inside is a tiny and free gem. It'll only take 5-10 minutes, but the CBC Museum is worth the...
