It only takes an hour or two to go through but for older folks and many young people this museum will fascinate. Many different types of televisions on display. If you are spending a few days in Toronto, be sure to seek this one out.

Known as the Art & Design District, West Queen West is
one of the most energetic and dynamic of Toronto's

funkiest specialty shops, ranging from clothing to
stationary to collectables, and caters to niche and
vintage shoppers of all kinds. That makes it a mecca
for creatives, including hobbyists designers, writers,
