Join Toronto History Museums to discover what people used to do for amusement before electricity, movies, and the internet. How different, and not-so-different, did playtime used to be? What kinds of toys did children play with back in the 1830s? The children at Montgomery's Inn did a lot of chores. What did they do for fun? What games did teenagers and adults play?
