Campbell House Museum
Campbell House Museum is a heritage house museum, located in Toronto and open to the public for tours. Campbell House Museum is dedicated to telling the story of the Campbell family, who moved from Scotland to Canada in the 1840s. The first settlers arriving in Toronto were mostly Irish farmers and their families, who came from all over to seek a better life. In 1843, Archibald Campbell arrived in Toronto with his wife and two children. He was one of the first settlers arriving in Canada’s largest city, which at that time had only a few thousand people. This charming heritage house museum tells the story of how this family lived and preserved their home as it looked like during that time period.
