We will visit Star City, just outside Moscow, the once secret site to train the pride of the Soviet Union, Russian cosmonauts. Canada’s Chris Hadfield trained in its full-sized Soyuz capsules. We will visit the great sites of Moscow too… Red Square, St. Basil’s Cathedral, and the Kremlin. Then on to see the greatest treasures of the Old Russian Empire in St. Petersburg with its renowned palaces, canals and a jewel of the art world – the Hermitage. Your host for this unique trip will be Bob McDonald of CBC’s Quirks and Quarks.

This is every chocoholic's dream tour. You can't call yourself a real chocolate lover if you haven't been on the only chocolate tour in Toronto that divulges the art of chocolate tasting and samples chocolate from bean to bar. Come join us as we walk the trendy streets of King West, Queen West & Dundas West, enjoying chocolates & chocolatey sweets while chatting with chocolatiers and store owners. Along the way, you'll discover where chocolate comes from, how some chocolate can be good for you, and why we crave it so - while satisfying those cravings!

The First World War transformed Canada. During that war, 3,327 Eaton's employees enlisted to fight. Each time one of them was shipped overseas, a photo was displayed prominently in the Toronto store just steps from Mackenzie House. 2,000 of these portraits survived and have become part of the T. Eaton Company records at the Archives of Ontario. In commemoration of Canada's 150th birthday, Mackenzie House staff have been actively searching out accounts of the lives of these men and urging the public to come forward to share their stories of the soldiers with us. Who were these men? Come to our exhibit and find out. This exhibit is presented as part of TO Canada with Love, the City of Toronto's year-long program of celebrations, commemorations and exhibitions honouring Canada's 150th birthday.
