Lots of good Canadian talent. There was a variety of art from the ship models to Andy Warhol. Small cafe and gift shop. Staff was nice.

Depending on the special exhibits, I will visit the AGO 2 or 3 times since year. I always appreciate the permanent collection and are more often then not satisfied with the exhibits. Yesterday was my first bad one, and it had nothing to do with the art. My wife and I, along with our 5 year old purchased tickets got... More

We visited the AGO with our kids for a day out in Toronto. Excellent exhibits in a beautiful building. We've been to galleries in most major cities, they are larger but the AGO has a great "vibe" to it. Only compliant is the hours, they should be open longer hours IMO. We will be back again this spring.

Attended the Mystical landscapes exhibit on two different occasions. It was excellent as is most of the gallery's special exhibits. Enjoyed a drink at Frank's after the show.

My girlfriend and I visited on the last weekend of the "Mystical Landscapes: Masterpieces from Monet, Van Gogh & More". We had a great time. We went on a Sunday afternoon and the gallery was packed with people from all walks of life. Electricity was in the air. We availed of the audio tour. Suffice it to say that the... More

Very well presented and spaced, if you're a fan of Gaugin, Monet, Van Gough, try to make it this coming Sunday Feb. 19 will be the last day of exhibit. The "other Starry Night" had the most people crowded around and not moving away, so bring your patience as well as good comfortable shoes. The AGO is such a beautiful... More

I visited many times and it is always new exhibits to discover. The place itself is very interesting to see surrounded by the university campus.

Lots of art displayed... but I've been to better galleries. They have monthly evenings with music and cocktails ... it's a good evening out if the talent is good... it's very hit and miss

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a 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 that shoulder in against each other display shining roast ducks and menus studded with dumplings and noodle bowls. The air is pervaded with music. different languages, and the smell of fried food and mouth-watering desserts. Chinatown's restaurants represent a broad range of fare, from traditional Szechuan and Shanghai foods, to other Asian delicacies, including some of the top Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean spots in the city. Whether you're in the mood for a sit-down tea house or a bubble tea to go, Chinatown is the spot to enjoy an exciting walk and the promise of leaving satisfied.
