A beautiful way to spend the day. The AGO is always a good choice. Different artists are featured throughout the year. I've checked out many galleries and I've never been disappointed.

Love the building, love the permanent collection and the special shows. I head for the members lounge every time I visit, to rest my poor feet and relax with a coffee before continuing on to more galleries. The AGO, for me, is in itself worth...More

Especially enjoyed the Canadian section Group of Seven! One could take a whole day to explore this gem. Wear good shoes for comfort. Many places to sit relax and enjoy the art

Some surprisingly good european art (think Rembrandt, Hals and Tintoreeto though the famous Rubens was on loan) but really enjoyed a good survey of Canadian art with a particular focus on Tom Thompson and the Group of Seven.

Lovely Art Galery with lots of art pieces from famous paintors, sculptors. Next to AGO there is a very nice pub where we ate and drank a nice beer! On wednesdays nights, during the summer, from 6pm to 8pm the entrance is free.

It’s an amazing place for everyone. So many interesting works and a great area for all kids. Make sure to download an app called reBlink and use it towards selected paintings - worth a visit

Enjoyed a relaxing stroll thru several exhibits and the gift shop. Of particular interest was the early Ethiopian religious art exhibit. Very rare pieces and the sculpture gallery .

Please look to other reviews on the permanent exhibits; on this occasion we only visited the special exhibit, showing in large-scale, hyper-realistic photographs, humans' influence on our planet. Precious few examples of human-caused improvements, and some suggestions for eco-friendly actions individuals can take, but on...More

the museum was a great place to spend an afternoon. I recommend the free tour that walks you through highlights of the collection. Interesting programming as well, they had a great Burtynsky show on at the time.

Chinatown
Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the

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.
