  • Great place to understand the history of Toronto. Very clean and the lady at the front desk was so helpful. As a foreign visitor I didn't know anything about Toronto history and she gave a brief of it. The whole historical site is very conserved and the items were well displayed. I wish I had more time to spend there. I was for 1 hour and half and could have seen more.
  • Had a great time at vegan fest. It was well set up, great music, awesome vendors, amazing food. One thing I cant wrap my head around is paying an entrance fee and then also paying for everything when you get in though. It gets pretty pricey.
