Inside the Museums: Toronto's Heritage Sites and Their Most Prized Objects Reviews
As a self-proclaimed Museum Nerd, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It gives an overview of the phenomenal City of Toronto museums; if I had one nitpick, it would be that not ALL city owned facilities were covered, substituting The Grange, Campbell House and TO’s First Post Office for Scarborough Museum and Todmorden Mills (and the Zion Schoolhouse was a footnote in the Gibson House chapter).Goddard introduces the site, gives a walk through, and discusses nearby attractions, giving the reader enough to make them want to visit the sites, or revisit favourites. His background of newspaper reporter comes across in his writing style, noticeable but not in the least off putting.
Disappointing. Not nearly enough pictures. Printed on cheap newsprint in black and white so wouldn't matter anyway if there were more pictures.
