It is definitely worth to visit even when you are not an art lover. You just will appreciate the exhibition and artwork. Take at least 2-3hours to stroll through the museum.

Am I snobby for being annoyed with an art museum? There are some great pieces to see here, like Picasso and the group of seven, but also some surprise artists like Van Gogh and Monet. They are by no means their best work, but they're...More

Even when there are lots of people inside, it's so big that it hardly feels crowded. Too daunting to take it all in in one visit; so it's best to know what's there before you go and put contrasting sites together as you can get...More

The museum collection it's diversity and have a lot of unexpected galleries. You start to walk into a room, who takes you to other and this keep going. The architecture of the building it's an attraction by it self.

Highly recommend this for a family outing with teen-aged art afiocionados. Tip: Select what you want to see ahead / on site, split up and go explore. Don't forget to do the stairs - great views all the way to the top. Didn't have time,...More

Pretty amazing to see the collection at the AGO. It is quite varied and different. I was definitely inspired by the art collection and also the kind of valuables people used to have back in the day. I visited for 3 hours, but still wasn't...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.
