Historical place by York University.

They are almost finished a subway station here so it will be super accessible. Lots of history and interesting place to see how people lived in Toronto 100's of years ago.

This place will take you back to a time when most of what you needed you made yourself. You had to make your own soap, grow your food, weave cloth to make clothes and make your own candles. But it was also a time when families were close and worked together and were part of a tight community. The kids... More

An amazing place to learn about life in Upper Canada a couple of centuries ago. Lot's of buildings to tour inside - some residential, some businesses such as a blacksmith, printing house. In some there are costumed staff which explain how things used to be done. Unfortunately in some of the houses the staff is not too engaging and you... More

It was a good experience for the kids they enjoyed learning how many things used to get made. The beer tasting was fun for me.

First of all I must say the food and the service at the restaurant were fantastic but it was still grossly over priced. The $66 charge per person (along with the $7 parking) was not worth the experience, Some tables were lovely and had lots of room around them most were tightly together. Our table was for 8 and was...
