Spadina House - Review
This period house museum offers visitors an insight into the lives of the Austin family members from 1866 1982. Currently the museum has been refurbished to look as it did during the period between the first world wars. Greatly appreciated for the architecture and furnishings that were prevalent during three generations of the Austin family - Victorian, Edwardian, Arts and Crafts, Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Colonial Revival styles - the house gardens are almost as popular with visitors.

Spadina House, Toronto Reviews
For the past few years, Spadina Museum has played host to the Not Far From The Tree City Cider Event that showcases different ciders from across Ontario. If you love ciders, this is a fun family event with food, entertainment and the opportunity to explore the Spadina Museum itself which is a former home of a wealthy and prominent family that details life in the 1920s. Much of the house is restored and has guides in each room to explain the function of each room. It's pretty interesting if you like to know more about Toronto history.
Spadina Museum is one of the 7 smaller museums owned and managed by the City. Its a wonderful insight into a successful titan of industry's 1920 home...actually built much earlier but decorated for 1920. Across the street from Casa Loma and perched on the original escarpment and shoreline of Lake Ontario...the views are striking. There is a very good intro video before you begin your tour to set the historical context. The grounds have fruit trees, a greenhouse, the chauffeur's family residence above the carriage house and the groundskeepers home. It's well worth the visit...under $10...check the website.
I've always heard of the Spadina Museum, but never had a chance to go until I stumbled upon it during Open Doors. Though I only had a small amount of time to explore, I did enjoy what it had to offer. It was nice to learn about local history and get a sense of what it was like to live in Toronto, during that time frame. I found the staff to be very friendly and quite knowledgeable, and happy to answer any questions I had. I was quite impressed that they had a good chunk of the original decor from the Austin Family. The house is restored to the 1920s time period, which make it great for an morning, or early afternoon stroll. The gardens in the spring/summer is also great to check out.
First time visit, but I Loved it, because there was a history to it. When you go there you will love it, fun for the whole family.. 😁
I was really happy with how well run a recent event at this museum was! An outdoor event in the rain could spell a nightmare but the team were well prepared and made sure most attractions were in tents. The gardens were stunning! The museum itself is beautiful and our tour guide exceeded all expectations with his knowledge base! I would go again for sure!!!
