Went with two friends to check out a preview of the Impressionism in the age of industry exhibit. Line up moved quickly to get in and there was a lot of work to see. The actual exhibit on preview was crowded but still manageable. Only...More

Attending this exhibition left me feeling a little flat. The show seemed to be more of a history lesson and curatorial verbiage than about great art. I love Impressionist work, but this particular collection was less compelling than expected.

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to

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.
