I visited here about ten years ago and the difference was amazing. I went at the Christmas season and the display of designer trees was variable, but the house was much improved.It is now well furnished with many of the pieces authentic. The biggest plus, however, was the FREE audio tour that allowed an excellent review of the history of... More

We paid CAD$62 for 2 adults and 1 child, a bit overpriced for visitng a castle, but still reasonable. Far from our hotel, but take train to Dupont Station and walk up Spadina Road to get there. A lot of areas in 3 floors, and even a basement cafe! There are audio tours available for free in the basement shop,... More

Casa Loma, you could say, is like most museums, of course it focuses on the specific history of the building. What I really appreciated was the audio tours that were included, which made touring and learning about the site that much easier and enjoyable. There is a lot to explore, you can definitely spend the better part of a day... More

Another gem in Toronto that's well worth the visit. While the combined admission and parking fees can be a bit high, it's worth to visit this gem as it shows an opulent side of Toronto that's well worth noting. The museum shows how then Canada's richest person lived and his love for his art is pervasive and informative. The interactive... More

This is probably one of the items of Toronto history that so many of us miss. It is a magnificent piece of architecture with an incredible story of Sir Henry Pelham. We all should visit and support this castle on the hill. Especially great to visit at christmas time with the decorations - find the secret passage!

Visiting a 'real' castle was a highlight for my grandkids. However, listen up Liberty Entertainment. It wasn't busy because it is WAY TOO EXPENSIVE. Before we saw anything, I had spent more than $75 including parking and believe it or not $2 each for kids' coats to be checked. Then to the cookie decorating - $5 each. When I asked... More

We visited Casa Loma on a beautiful summer day. The castle is very nice with a lot of wonderful items on display. The audio device that explains everything is really good and precise. The grandeur of the cStle is truly awe inspiring. They have a restaurant on the terrace which had ok food. Definitely worth a visit.

I bet I haven't been there in 40 years. It is now all furnished with wireless headsets to view this historic home. I genuinely enjoyed it and my adult kids did also. They have many authentic furnishings which were in the home when Sir Henry Pellat lived there. It is the type of place you could go each year and... More

They have it all. History and now culture and food! They have a restaurant set up in the garden...fantastic ambiance and good food. There are concert series on Tuesdays. Look it up. There are events for teachers to take their classes. It's good for tourists. It has something for everyone. Maybe a bit pricey, but the concert series is so... More

I had been wanting to visit Casa Loma as many people have been talking about it. I bought a Groupon online for half price tickets so decided it was a good deal. It is a very beautiful place, however over hyped. Everything inside is nicely displayed etc. however nothing extremely lovely. There are very minor "wow" factors, the most memorable... More
