We stopped by the brand center, and we were told by the guard that the center is now venue for wedding. The edifice is outstanding from the outside. Sad that the interior is closed to the general public.

We went there with friends of ours about 1-2 years ago. The tour was excellent. You learn a lot about the history including Al Capone. At the end of the tour you get a sample.

The tour of Hiram Walkers is a great piece of our heritage. I found it most interesting. Doesn't take long but to learn how it all came about was informative.

This has been one of the must-dos every time I am in Windsor (I live in Michigan). Now that the owners want to close it down, it's just depressing. The history of this beautiful building, the Canadian/American history attached to it, HIram Walker's family's history,...More

Unfortunately a few months ago they stopped the tours and closed the building. Locals are holding out hope that someone comes through and saves this beautiful building and piece of history.

Unfortunately they ended their tours the end of April. We are holding out hope that they find a way to reopen for tours. It will be a shame if they do not reopen. It is a beautiful facility full of history!
