The museum shares the story of a man who was once rich by banking and investments, bringing electricity to Toronto and controlled 25% of Canadian development, only to become penniless. His adventures were to harness the power of Niagara Falls and bring electricity to Toronto, as well as fund aviation, only to be absorbed by the government. The story is... More

Great place to visit, at least once. Outside beautiful gardens and lots of shades in summer. Inside you'll learn about history of great people who lived some time ago. On the top floor you'll see real weapon and uniform of the Canadian Legion during World War I.

Excellent architectural example I have visited ever since French-club field trips in eighth grade but didn't know enough to wait patiently for ghosts at that time. Love to attend there with my family now for a 1/2 or whole day excursion. Sadly the downstairs Artroom with all its beautiful Chinese Lanterns and work has been replaced by a cafe, to... More

You can go there just to know what it is. As a museum it looks very poor, the smell is bad but the service is good.

Been many years since I had been here so it was enjoyable. Price for seniors about $18.00. Lots to see if you include the gardens. Beautiful site. 3 floors of rooms are open and make sure you go downstairs to visit and antique car display and the states area. Great old pictures of Toronto along the hallways towards the car...

Had a great time exploring this massive home! The 'Oak Room' was incredible and the history of the house was very interesting. I have to admit, I got the biggest kick out of learning how many of my favorite movies were filmed there! A must see.

Interesting place, very cool building. When you're up in a tower find a window that faces the city and take a look at the skyline it's pretty awesome.

So enjoyed my visit here. It is a fascinating building with a rich history...and, hey, it's also the school from The X-Men as well as it's use in other films. I had fun walking the secret corridors and underground paths of this very large jewel in Toronto.

This is definitely worth a visit, the history and place itself are fascinating. You can spend a good afternoon/day here. check out the secret passage and tunnel that leads to the garage!
