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.
The AGO offers a large range of art from modern to historical. The gallery spaces are airy and beautiful with a recent renovation designed by Frank Gehry. Great place for a short or long visit. Be sure to check for special exhibits and don't miss...More
I joined a friend to view the Anthropocene special exhibit over lunch hour one day. It's a sobering view of the effect humans have had and are having on the earth. The AGO is a great place to spend a couple of hours or a...More
Superb show that will give you a totally fresh view of the work of the Impressionists. Not a water lily in sight. Shows how attached some of them were to exploring the impact of the Industrial Revolution and the impact on lives of farmers, workers,...More

This was the most confusing building I have ever been in.
The gallery is a series of small rooms connected to other small rooms in no discernable pattern. It is difficult to track where you have been. Eventually we figured out that you had to...More
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 Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
