I find this place is interesting and I like how you can get your hands on with writing with quill and ink. It is harder than it looks. You get to send the post afterwards. Friendly postmistress. It is a working post office too.
This works as an actual post office so don’t expect a big museum. But if you have time and are passing by, enter there, lose a few minutes and write a letter using proper ink and paper, seal it with wax and send it to...More
Very friendly staff and an interesting place to look around. I had researched it before we arrived so went out of our way to find it. Not bit and doesn't take much time but does take you back to it's origins. The postcards I posted...More
We were looking for an open Post Office on a Saturday morning and when we Googled it we were stunned that it was actually a tourist attraction as well. The young woman behind the counter was especially helpful in assisting us to send a large...More
Interesting little place. Not well advertised and easily missed. No actual fee to get in but does ask for a small $2 donation. Opportunity to try writing with a quill and ink. Didn't take long to go around and see everything but still worth a...More
Walked by this site on my way to and from our offices and went in on impulse. Not a big place but lots of history. Liked the way they tried to honor the origins while doing what is needed as it's a working post office....More
My sister and I were visiting Toronto for the first time from the U.S. (Ohio and New Jersey) Having worked for the postal service for many years, my sister thought it might be fun just to walk by and see this building and stop in....More
What a lovely, quaint little Post Office, that is actually still a working post office, so much history in such a small space. The post office is very small but crammed with so much memorabilia from the past. Really interesting to read many of the...More
It's a historical site but there was close to no one when I visited, only a few locals that came in to run errands.
It was a fun and interesting experience to write with an actual quill and have the letter wax sealed (for $2;...More
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
