There's always something special on display. Recently the Anthropocene show ended, but there will be others. Meanwhile, the permanent collection is superb. You need a whole day to appreciate it. While you are there, have a scrumptious meal at the Bistro.

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.

No. They are especially strict when they have a really popular exhibit.
