Glanmore National Historic Site

Glanmore is an excellent example of Second Empire architecture in Canada. The home – now a regional museum – was built in 1883 for banker J.P.C. Phillips. Interiors feature ornate frescoed ceilings, suspended staircases and intricate woodwork. Even though the site is closed, there is much to see and do through Digital Doors Open. Explore their online collections (approximately 20,000 artifacts), watch a video about the restoration of the site, take a 3D tour (don’t forget your virtual reality glasses!), and discover the Canada at Play online exhibit (currently on loan from the Royal Ontario Museum), where you can also learn how to make a rag doll.
