Nice place to see. Well organized and well managed. You can see the greatness and the fall of a family.

This was a fun spot to check out. However, it was done by audio tour so you walked around with a speaker around your neck. Got the gist of the castle history with the video when you walk in . After that it was just seeing every room and learning all the details of each area, etc. Not my thing... More

There isn't too much to see there, just a castle (beautiful) with it's rooms decorated... The external view of the castle offers a beautiful scenarium for pictures. The gardens aren't so atttractive as they told on internet.

This modern castle has an interesting history which is shared via the audio guide which is included in the entrance fee. However, when we visited on a Monday it was very, very, busy. The most annoying part of this being that we were asked not to enter one of the rooms because a school group was using it, and could... More

This was something to do on a rainy day. It was enjoyable, but it's not in the same league as other castles I've visited in Europe (better furnished than a few though). On the other hand, this isn't in Europe, and that's why I've rated it as "very good" instead of "average". It doesn't have the history, the scale, or... More

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.
