Toronto Museums for Mothers’ Day

The absolutely cheapest option among Toronto museums for Mothers’ Day in Toronto is the Scarborough Museum. They offer a pay-what-you-can entry fee. The Scarborough Museum claims that every Saturday and Sunday in May is Mothers’ Day; so if you miss May 10, 2015, just visit 1007 Brimley Road on some other weekend. This museum features a log home and a farmhouse in Thompson Memorial Park, so it’s a great spot for a walk in the spring.

Eating out is another traditional option for Mothers’ Day. But remember that every pancake house will be filled to overflowing by mothers having Sunday brunch with their families. Consider the Mothers’ Day Tea at the Gibson House museum instead. They have sittings at noon and 2:30pm for $25/person plus tax. You must make reservations for your tea and scones by calling 416-395-7432416-395-7432 . Gibson House is at 5172 Yonge St., a bit north of Mel Lastman Square. It’s easy to get there by TTC; exit the #1 Yonge subway line at the North York station and cross the first street to the north.

Speaking of tea, the Montgomery’s Inn Tea & Tour runs from 1-4pm on May 10, 2015. $10 plus tax buys afternoon tea with scones, preserves, tarts, and a tour to walk off the calories. This is “first come, first served” but you might call 416-394-8113416-394-8113 for information. Montgomery’s Inn is at 4709 Dundas St. West (just east of Islington).

Try the Mom Show for Mothers’ Day in Mississauga

Canada’s National Mom Show‘s claim to fame is that it’s a family-friendly event with a focus on celebrating motherhood while offering activities for small children. It’s a one-day event, and yes it is on Mothers’ Day, May 10, 2015. Drive your mother, or your wife and children, to the International Centre (6900 Airport Road in Mississauga); the event runs from 10am to 6pm. The site lists the performance schedule on several stages (including special activities and performances for your children). Adults may be more interested in the fashion shows, parenting and health tips, or how to make smoothies or baked goods for the family.

They only accept cash at the gate, but tickets are $20/adult, $10/child, and they offer family passes which effectively get your second child in for free.
