    Inside the Museums views Toronto’s heritage museums for the first time as a single community — linked by events, personalities, and function. In this special excerpt we visit one of the jewels in Toronto’s historical crown: Fort York. This fort was the famous site of the Battle of York in 1813 and was founded in 1793 as a military outpost; it served as a barracks as recently as the First World War and is one of the city’s leading tourist attractions. John Goddard takes us on a detailed tour, providing fascinating historical background and insight.
