  • Amazing architecture. Traditionnal style. Close to downtown.

  • This is a must-visit stop on an architectural tour of Toronto. It is centrally located and is beautiful example of Richardsonian Romanesque architecture.

  • Even if you're not attending the courthouse that it is now, the building is worth seeing anyway. Lots of history, and worth a visit.

  • Spectacular architecture, inside and out. A great piece of history. Well maintained and a must see.

  • Beautiful on the outside, incredibly disappointing on the inside, especially after standing in line for half an hour during Doors Open.
