I did not get to see the renowned Pointe-à-Callière Museum on this visit. I did get to spend time there in the twilight, wandering around there and the adjacent Place Royale down by the Saint Lawrence.

The CBC Museum is a free space inside the CBC headquarters in downtown Toronto on Front Street. The small space is full of artifacts from CBC’s technological past and from more recent children’s television programs like Mr. Dressup and The Friendly Giant. My attention, naturally, was focused on the latter.
