    They have tons of history all in one place. You can have your photo taken with the Stanley cup. Worth the trip. There is one section dedicated to World Hockey over time displaying a vast of information. Value of the trip: A trip worth taking.

    We spent a few hours here on a rainy afternoon. There was so much beautiful artwork to view. We preferred the areas that had traditional displays (with a writeup beside the art) as opposed to the ones where we had to log on and get information. There was a huge variety of artwork here and we enjoyed the changing exhibitions from when we had last been here (two years ago). Admission is free for 24 and under. Adult admission was $25 . For an extra $10 you can buy a full year membership.

    Somewhere I have always meant to visit, an elegant display of beautiful shoes, boots even some first straw/twig footwear…..I little bit cramped when busy but on many levels so you can move on.
    I liked the gift store again, a little cramped if busy but be patient.

    The only thing on the downside (for some) for the Aga Khan museum is that it's outside of the downtown core. But get an uber and go. It's fascinating and has some outstanding exhibits. Easy to spend 2-3 hours there. And plan to have a meal – the restaurant is terrific.

    Well kept and very interesting. Loved the interactive components.

    Both myself & my 11 year old grandson really enjoyed it. There was so much to see and a lot of variety.

    Give yourself lots of time to really experience it all.

    Recently, all 10 Toronto History Museums became free! The website doesn't tell you this yet, but you have to go on a guided tour to see the house; you can't go through on your own. They are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, but here are the opening dates and tour times:
    Wednesday, Friday: 12:15, 1:15, 2:15, 3:15, 4:00
    Thursday: 12:15, 1:15, 2:15, 3:15, 4:15, 5:15, 6:00
    Saturday, Sunday: 11:15, 12:15, 1:00, 1:45, 2:30, 3:15, 4:00

    Tours are limited and do have a capacity. Arrive early to avoid disappointment (at least 30-45 minutes before your desired tour time). The gardens are also STUNNING, so bring a picnic. The grounds are open till 5 pm Wed, Fri, Sat, and Sun, and till 7 pm on Thursdays.

    I happened to be nearby and decided to pay a short visit. There is a small cloak room with a few lockers for backpacks. The museum was pleasantly uncrowded making for a fine, slightly less than one hour visit. The pieces are diverse and interesting and the small shop had some lovely pieces to purchase. I bought some small cups and a saucer and the shop keeper did a great job packing them up in bubble wrap for my flight home.

    We arrived early because we understood from reviews that you even have to line-up for parking. I wish we could pay for parking ahead of time, but we did move through quite quickly. It was raining, but many families (even with babies and little kids) lined up outside anyway. The Science Centre was kind enough to open doors early for that reason. The line moved quickly because they had staff to direct people with or without tickets, although we were still a little confused if we were in the right line. But once we were checked-in it was easy to go straight to the exhibits we were interested in with a little direction from the many staff available. We were surprised by how much we could do in two hours even with a March Break crowd probably because we arrived at opening. I saw a negative review about having to read too much stuff, but we found there was still plenty of interactive stations or videos to watch, and my kids (ages 10, 13 and even my husband) never seemed bored. We also ate at the cafeteria which was reasonably priced and seemed to have a good food selection and seating. The person who served us messed up the order, but otherwise no other complaints.

    We didn't plan to visit the museum, but the outdoor (free) trains were fun to watch and board, so we thought that there were more fun activities waiting inside. We were disappointed to see that there were no children activities other than a few coloring sheets. The place was pretty small and we finished in about 30 minutes, but for $30 for a family of 4 it's fine.

    Excellent info on history and war culture from onsite experts. Well laid out site with lots of hands-on access to war memorabilia. Highly recommend it for families for learning more of Canada’s history right in our own backyard!

    Excellent exhibits finely curated though aimed at adults there are programs developed for other segments. Shop has been dumbed down. One of the few institutions to focus on process as well as outcome/works. Like McCord small footprint impressive experience.

    I visited Mackenzie House to join its (ghost) storytelling activity and for some history-packed fun on a winter day. This is the last home of Toronto's first mayor, for many, is the city's most haunted house. Sitting in a dimly lit room built in 1830, with only candle lights, sipping apple cider and munching cheese shortbread, I got this unique chance to listen to ghost stories written in 1863. Also tried the Washington Press, one of the oldest printing presses in Canada, to print a lovely new year card for myself. 😚

    I went here on a walking tour. Interesting architecture and worth the visit if you are nearby but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it.
