Inside the Museum — Mackenzie House

Overview

Inside the Museums views Toronto’s heritage museums for the first time as a single community — linked by events, personalities, and function. In this special excerpt we visit Mackenzie House, the grey-brick townhouse, steps from modern Yonge-Dundas Square and the Toronto Eaton Centre, where the firebrand rebel publisher lived from 1859 till his death in 1861; his family moved out in 1871. John Goddard takes us on a detailed tour of the house, providing fascinating historical background and insight.
