The museum is a vibrant public space where members of Toronto’s diverse communities gather to discuss, to create, to perform and to socialize, giving life to the words “freedom of expression”.

Explore the roots of contemporary food culture in nineteenth century heritage foodways during a special visit to Campbell House Museum. Discover what the iconic contemporary comfort food, macaroni and cheese, reveals about evolving tastes, class and economic systems over time. Enjoy samples prepared by culinary historian and curator Liz Driver in the historic kitchen of the oldest remaining house from the original town of York. Highlighting an alternative to the evolution of slow food to fast food, Conscious Consumption participants will be introduced to models of food processing and local production that can help us understand issues of sustainability today.
Conscious Consumption is presented with the support of TD Friends of the Environment as well as the K.M. Hunter Charitable Foundation.

The critically acclaimed Elizabeth – Darcy is returning “home” to Campbell House for what is becoming a seasonal tradition!
This is a love story. This is a comedy. This is two women playing all the parts. This is the Jane Austen you love with a squeeze of lemon. This is you moving through a historic home with the story. This is you getting caught up, swept away, laughing out loud.
All 18 shutters on the front of the house have returned featuring a fresh coat of “Pitch Black” by Farrow and Ball. The house looks splendid!
