This place has marvelous collections. In particular, Ienjoyed many of the First People art work, both traditional and modern. The Group Seven works, which I first read about in a Louise Penney novel, I thought were mostly drab and uninteresting. There is currently a special...More

Very busy (more so than the ROM). I was very time-crunched on this occasion, so I had time only to check out the model ship collection in the basement, which is amazing (although not very well illuminated!). Facilities (cafe, bistro, shop) are excellent. Note that...More

About 25% of the AGO was off limits, preparing new exhibits etc. Yet there was no discount to the already expensive entrance fee. The exhibits were ok, but certainly not up to world class standards, although the aboriginal art was very good. As a pensioner...More

This museum is gorgeous. The stairs are fun to climb. The coffee shop is a nice respite. The display of the Canadian Seven Group is wonderful. The Inuit sculpture is small but fabulous. Loved it!

Loved this place. Definitely world class as I'd expect in Toronto. Wished they had a bit more gallery seating to rest cause 3 hours just touched the surface.

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.
