As the name suggests, it is Toronto’s First Post Office and is functional even today. It is located in the historic St. Lawrence district. It has a museum inside which is worth visiting. Certainly would very highly recommend the same to any traveler.

We went to walk around old town Toronto and started our walk here. Expected to just see an old building, but we went inside. Good thing! Not only is it a current functioning post office, they have a full museum inside. Additionally, they have quills, ink and parchment so you can write "like they do in Harry Potter". You can also spend a couple of bucks and get full letter parchment, address, wax seal and mail the letter so it's waiting when you get home. A thrill for my kids. Staff was awesome and very friendly. Expected to be a 5 minute stop and was there for almost an hour. Public bathroom available too.

We had a quick but fun stop here. You can learn about the history of the building and can write your own letters like the 17th century. Very friendly and helpfull staff!

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. We parked just along the road. 1 hour was enough if you just came here just to visit this small building.

This is a nice stop. It’s a bit hard to spot at first because it’s just a door. You can buy stamps here before mailing your post. You can also try your hand at writing using a quill!
