Craigdarroch Castle in Victoria

Tragically, Mr. Dunsmuir passed away before the home’s completion, and only his wife, Joan, and some of their children and grandchildren ever actually lived in the home. After Joan’s death in 1908, the entire contents of the Castle were sold at an auction and the property was subdivided. The castle subsequently served as a military hospital, a college, school board offices, a music school and finally as a historic museum.

A highly recommended self guided tour. Beautifully restored rooms give a real sense of life in turn of the century Victoria's high society. Spectacular stained glass windows in almost every room.

The house is beautiful and the docents are the most informative and friendliest we have ever come across. They will spend as little or as much time as you want talking about the house, the history of the family, and their favorite items. Well worth the time and money to see this treasure from Canada's industrial rich!
