Good collection. Nice gift shop and great customer service in general. Near Chinatown. But I was a bit disappointed that I got there by 10 am and there were no tickets left for the Kusama room.

I had an enhanced membership with a donation monthly. That has ended. There service is members is horrible. They did not even return a email when I had a legitimate issue. Nice gallery but horrible service for members.

Saw this exhibit - the way it’s laid out you wait a long time to see each “room”. While each room is interesting not sure they are worth waiting for! Don’t miss the art and information outside each room - they are very interesting. Disappointed...More

Everyone seemed confused at the entrance, about where to get tickets and enter the museum, but it was during the Kusama Infinity Mirrors exhibition so there was a frenzy of people lined up in various locations. The entry courtyard is stunning, but once again it...More

Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the

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.
