For those that complained that it is not a real castle, it is so named because when it was being built the locals and neighbours commented that it looked like a castle compared to surrounding homes. And for those that complained about the admission cost, a yearly pass for an individual is only $30 and you can go as many times as you want. Handy when you have out of town company. It is a wonderful place, an escape from the world. And yes, it is a museum, so why would you want to touch anything. Better to protect the artifacts.
Thoroughly enjoyed this viewing from the past. Craigdarroch Castle is pretty well-known and is well organized as a tour. We went through the entire place and enjoyed the trip backwards. Worth a visit!
A great historic site in the heart of Victoria. Beautifully restored building, friendly and knowledgeable staff. Good place to visit, it will take just over an hour to see it all and get a feel for life in the late 1800s.
loved that museum. We went there on a Monday and it wasn't too crowded. It was so interesting to walk and being able to read about the different rooms in the castle. It's beautifully presented and the architecture is great. The information is great for educational purposes and adults and kids can enjoy the facts and information given about the room and its content.
It is not a castle. It is a Victorian mansion originally owned by a rich mining tycoon. All of the belongings were sold off after the wife passed. They are buying back items but it is more of a museum of Victorian living of a rich family. There is not any elaborate jewelry to view. The house has various owners and uses which they explain as you go through each room.
If you like Victorian houses and history, or romance novels, then you may like it. There are narratives of the family and what became of the children and fortune. There is a gift shop. Restrooms are next door where you buy your tickets and the gift shop is located next door as well. You cannot touch anything and I understand for preservation reasons.
It was a nice leisurely walk down Fort Street to see it. I believe that you can make up your mind whether you want to visit from this summary without my personal opinion.
