1. Haunted Walks in Toronto
In the dark, cavernous interior of Toronto’s McLaughlin Planetarium lurks the ghost of a seven-year-old girl who’s terrified employees since the building first opened in the 1960s. Nicknamed Celeste, the apparition is apparently the spirit of a girl who died in a house that stood on the site before the planetarium was built. Her presence has permeated the building through its many iterations, from children’s museum to storage facility. Seen flitting down hallways-and blamed for moving items and throwing toys at employees-the attention-starved little girl’s laughter echoes about. While guests of the Muddy York Walking Tour-a haunted walk that focuses on the University of Toronto and its surrounding neighbourhoods-can’t enter the Planetarium, many have reported seeing Celeste through the building’s glass doors, which have been known to rattle of their own volition.
