From today to November 30, general admission to nine of the City’s historic museums will be free courtesy of Mackenzie Investments in celebration of its 50th anniversary.

On November 4 and 5, a number of the museums will celebrate Toronto’s culinary history with “Canada Cooks, Toronto Eats,” which will feature live cooking demonstrations, food and drink samples, and presentations from chefs and special guests.
