This museum is located within the Thompson Park. It is nice for the whole family to take a guided tour of the house and learn about the pioneers and their life. They also have camps that children will enjoy taking part in.

number of low-rent shopping and dining options making
it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one
of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise
