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
I thought this would just be a stop on the way to something else, because why not? Now I think it may be a highlight of the trip. We were the only ones there so we got a private tour which was lovely. Our guide was very friendly and informative. Not only did we learn about Mackenzie and his family, but we learned about Toronto and Canada during the time period. It was a great experience. We even got to type set our names and use the printing press (and keep the print). Very fun and my favourite stop of the day for sure. I certainly recommend it.
This is a wonderful museum to visit in your spare time. The entry fee is small, and the staff are so friendly. At the end of the tour, you get to try out the printing press, which is fun for kids and adults alike. Would recommend this quaint trip to learn some history.
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.
Not a long tour, but an interesting one. The hosts are really nice and go out of their way to make it a good time. It's only $8 Canadian, so it's not a big investment.
Enjoyed the Mackenzie House way more than we thought we would. Printing press was really immersive and it was so interesting seeing an urban historic house instead of a rural house, which most other house museums are in Canada. Worth it!
