About Mackenzie House, Toronto
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
This museum is highly recommended for all tourists and residents alike. Even if you stay in Toronto for a few days, visit this place and take a tour of the house and the print shop. You will know much more about history of Toronto and it's first Mayor. It is a great place for families to spend half a day there. The staff is not only very knowledgeable, they love what they do and enjoy interacting with visitors. A gift shop on site, washrooms etc. Short walk to public transit and in the heart of downtown close to many other museums and attractions.
A hidden historical gem in the heart of downtown Toronto. Not busy at all on Saturday morning. Learned all sorts of interesting facts and fun takeaways from the print shop!
The house itself is interesting. The print making presentation was neat, but the tour was a little dry. I usually love this kind of thing, but there was too much focus on the furniture pieces rather than Mackenzie's history.
Great story teller.made history come alive. Amazing historical spot in the downtown.
Fantastic field trip for a day, very affordable and fun. There is lots to see and do here, the programs are really well run and the staff are definitely into their roles.
