The Craigdarroch Castle Historical Museum Society
1050 Joan Cres, Victoria, British Columbia

Craigdarroch Castle is a definitively Victorian experience. It is a shining example of a "bonanza castle" - massive houses built for entrepreneurs who became wealthy during the industrial age. In this case, the industrialist was Robert Dunsmuir, a Scottish immigrant who made his fortune from Vancouver Island coal.
