Toronto’s Spadina Museum re-opens to the public tomorrow (Sunday) after a year-long restoration that has taken the house back to its 1920s glory. Costumed docents will be on hand to lead free tours from 1 – 4 pm as part of the grand unveiling. I had the privilege of touring the house earlier this week and was amazed at how refreshed it all felt with new wallpapers, draperies, flooring, fabrics, etc.
Much earlier in the year, museum conservator Neil Brochu took me behind the scenes to talk about the complex restoration process, a story I’ll have for you soon; in the meantime I wanted to give you a heads up about Sunday’s reopening. You can see the house as it was in my house tour from 2009 or see my LiveWithCulture.ca post about the renewed house from earlier this week.
