We visited here in August 2014. Casa loma is an old castle like estate in the middle of Toronto. It's neat to see and a change of pace from the regular attrations. It's included with the citypass coupon book. In the gift shop they give out free audio tours that you can go through the building with at your own... More

Its a big place and has a lot of history - of one guy! This guy's possessions are quite astounding and one gets to see a lot of interesting uniforms, weapons, photographs, silverware etc. Its sometimes rented out for weddings and so sections could be cordoned off.

If you want to see a grand old home Casa Loma is just that. However, there are no original furnishings in the home. It's been renovated to accommodate tourists which takes a lot of the authenticity away. The tunnel to the outbuilding is unique, and worth seeing.

This castle is beautiful and the history behind it is quite the story. Be prepared to walk! The tour is self guided but there are free devices in the gift shop for a recorded tour. We were there for 3 hours and still did not get it all done (we had reservations elsewhere). The café was delicious but like all... More

We stopped here on our way out of town at the end of a three day trip. It's a beautiful castle overlooking the city. Loved the artwork (which was contemporary and didn't seem to fit in but still liked it). Loved the architecture and furnished rooms. Very small gift shop with not much to buy. Did not choose the audio... More

The museum itself is not impressive. It is suppossed to be a castle but it's more like a mansion with a lot of rooms and old stuff. The interesting side is the activities they organized there like weekly concerts with classical musicians and a nice restaurant to have pricey but good food. Check out what activites they have before you... More

Didn't expect it to be as nice as it was. Very informative and tons to look at. Staff are friendly, not for kids. Especially nit under 10. Not much for them to do. And history isn't part of their itinerary. Very nice place

Worth the activity even kept my 9 & 11 interested. Even better deal if you get this with the Toronto City Pass. Nice too the hand held guided tour. Castle in great shape a must see.

This is about the most historical place in Toronto. It's fun but if you're used to Italy or France..... it will probably be a let down. My kids liked it.
