About Spadina House, Toronto

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.

  • This more modest yet still grand dwelling, placed in the shadow of the palatial Casa Loma, is a wonderful place to visit on a beautiful day when the gardens are in full bloom. The interior is also worth a visit, but there is a fee to enter. It is fun to see how people lived in the recent past, with the interior reflecting the era of the early 1900's. They seem to have some fun events periodically as well. The gardens are breathtaking (and free on the day we were there, although I think you can also pay for tours of the grounds) to wander around, with flowers and a vegetable garden. So beautiful! Great for photographers!

  • Don't go on Mondays. ..it's closed. It's beautiful on the outside lol. Very helpful staff...even off shift.lol Looking foward to going when open. Looks beautiful through the windows looking in. I have been before, and it's wonderful, just wanted to take the kids this time.

  • A beautiful house that is a wonderful slice of Toronto history lovingly restored to the 1920s with original furnishings, decorations and memorabilia. Toronto's slightly more modest 'Downtown Abbey'.

  • Visited this historic landmark for the first time. Beautiful grounds, great tour and a sugar cookie with apple cider. I loved it!

  • The guided tour was very informative and the content was well presented. This place is full of well preserved history. I personally prefer places like this over e.g. Casa Loma. The shop has a lot of high quality souvenirs and NOT the common kitsch you find in other places. Oh, and make sure you try their homemade cookies on your way out (picture attached), it's only 2$.
