Craigdarroch Castle is a National Historic Site of Canada built in 1890 as a family residence for a wealthy coal baron named Robert Dunsmuir. Located on the highest hill in the City of Victoria, it is one of the earliest, most flamboyant and best preserved of the bonanza castles built in Canada, built during an era when outward displays of wealth were common. After serving as a military hospital, a college, a school board office and music conservatory, it was finally converted to its present day status as a museum.

Location formerly known as:
  • Craigdarroch Military Hospital (1919-1921)
  • Victoria College (1920-1946)
  • Victoria Conservatory of Music (1968-1979)
