Sometimes the special exhibits are not very good but I found this one particularly interesting. It deals with the Scandinavian influence in Canada. It covers many mediums. Who knew how much we were influenced. Of course the rest of the museum is worth a visit...More

We booked a clay class as part of team building for our office retreat. We had some instruction but most was left to our imagination and creativity. We also enjoyed some of the exhibits on the way in and the way out. Beautiful spot.

The museum has a great collection of ceramics. I was particularly interested in the maiolica. There was also an impressive collection of commedia dell'arte figurines. A great morning.

We probably wouldn't have chosen to visit but we had a special ticket - see below. Well curated but somewhat specialist and definitely had an 'exclusive' feel, unlike the friendly Textile and Shoe Museum, TOP TIP - buy the triple pass for this with the...More

The Gardner contains extremely fine examples of mainly European porcelain mainly from the 18th Century. This kind of museum is more likely to be found in Europe so Toronto is very lucky to have it and the quality of this porcelain collection exceeds that of...More

Lots of interesting exhibits. Loved the Japanese delicate pottery. Guided tour of a special exhibition of Italian Renaissance Maiolica collection was highly educational and enjoyable. Start at the bottom and see the collections in chronological order. Wish they allowed taking pictures. They don't sell postcards...More

The Gardiner Museum tends to be overlooked, but it is a real gem in the middle of the city. The staff were incredibly friendly, welcoming us and chit chatting for a while. I loved the second floor the best, it was filled with teacups! It...More

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination

a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in

with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of

I'm sorry I don't have these - maybe you could contact the museum itself. It was very well-curated
