We visited Gallery as a second plan but we were gladly surprised! Building is beautiful itself and there are several sections with European art which we liked a lot. Plus the Canadian artists section. We spent about two nice hours touring the whole place.

I absolutely love the gallery itself and I am happy to know it was Frank Gehry himself who laid a hand on it. But I find more important that they offer free Wednesday nights so everyone who can’t afford often admission can visit frequently. I...More

.... to do the exhibits justice. We opted for the free guided tour of the museum which was excellent. Our tour guide was very pleasant and knowledgeable asking questions as well as answering them. We enjoyed a wonderful pot of tea in the Cafe afterwards.

Well worth the entrance price - such a beautiful place, and enjoyed the wonerful art! The exhibition of How Humans are affecting the Earth, was an added bonus, both frightening and enlightening at the same time. Thank you, this was one of my favorites.

The Art Gallery of Ontario, housed in a beautiful contemporary structure, contains an interesting blend of art styles. Begin on the top floor where contemporary exhibits have one searching for meaning behind mankind's ills and proceed down the beautiful curved stairs stopping on each to...More

The AGO has brought more of it’s back catalogue into the light. It is refreshed and looking good. It is presented in good light and the paintings were nicely cleaned. The decision to show some of the art work without labels makes the galleries confusing...More

Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the
largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas
Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a
wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs
and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun.
Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with
people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and
products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces

It depends on what interests you and if you take one of the guided tours. I would say the minimum would be 2 hours, yet it would be very easy to spend 3+ hours there.

No. They are especially strict when they have a really popular exhibit.
