Mackenzie House - Review

This was the home of Toronto's First Mayor, William Lyon Mackenzie, who lived here from 1935 to 1937, when he was exiled to USA. He returned home in 1958 and stayed until his death in 1951. Today the Georgian style building is run as a historic house museum that focuses on Victorian life in the 1860s. Check the museum website for upcoming events.

Mackenzie House, Toronto Reviews

  • A small but interesting museum devoted to publisher and first mayor of Toronto William Lyon Mackenzie. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and passionate. I really love their hands on printing experience. Pro tip for Toronto residents: you can get a free pass to historic sites in Toronto from your local Toronto Public Library. Just ask for the MAP pass.

  • None of us had been to Mackenzie House before and didn't know what to expect. We had come to see the exhibit about employees from Eaton's who had served in WW1. The six of us were the only ones in the museum so we were basically given a private tour by Bruce who I can only describe as a walking encyclopedia about the history of Mackenzie and the history of early Ontario. The house has three floors (including basement kitchen) and they are all covered in the tour. After the tour of the house we spent some time in the print shop which is a recreation of a what Mackenzie's shop would have looked like. The guide in this area was also really well informed and engaging. Everyone got to set up up some type and then print off a small one sheet memento of the visit. We all had a great time. Well worth a visit. Admission was $7 each. We found street parking on Bond Street and there is also a parking lot nearby. This was on a Saturday morning so I'm not sure what it would be like on weekdays.

  • I went here for Doors Open and I loved my experience! It was really informative and the tour guides were really friendly.

  • We visited the first Mayor of Toronto’s home for Doors Open. The girls enjoyed exploring the home, looking at 3D photos, trying on costumes and learning about the printing press. The staff were excellent.

  • Knowledgeable and very enthusiastic reenactprs. Small museum, tight spaces. Apparently haunted
