I've been a few times now and each time come away disappointed. Our kids gave us tickets for the Mystical Landscapes exhibit - what a disappointment and waste of money. Many pictures were Group of Seven which are normally on display. There were only two Van Goghs and a couple of Monets; the advertising leads you to believe there would... More

The AGO Mystical Landscapes exhibit is recommended BUT was very crowded. Leave extra time to see the Group of Seven collection to get a real taste of Canadian art. The ship model exhibit was also quite good. I have visited this gallery many times. It is easy to get to from the subway (less than 3 blocks) and the cafes... More

I visited on a Saturday afternoon, at first to view the Mystical Landscapes exhibit. With a couple of hours to fill before the assigned ticket hour I explored the many galleries in the AGO. There were so many fine Canadian artists to appreciate and learn about. I lingered to take photos, to look up the artists' bios, to see if... More

We went for the Mystical Landscapes exhibit because I wanted to be able to see Van Gogh's Starry Night on the Rhone. Came for Van Gogh and stayed for Monet! Beautiful beautiful works. I wish the actual Starry Night was there but it was humbling and beautiful to see the Rhone nonetheless. I'm not toooo big on art but I... More

Lovely to visit just for the architecture alone. Just gorgeous. But we also saw a few wonderful art exhibits while there. They also had a wonderful shop and café. Highly recommend a visit.

We took the grandkids for the Sunday family day outing. Kids had a blast. Very interactive programming. Also have attended with my partner on other occasions and enjoyed the exhibits and the entertainment. Great value for the dollar and very cultural.

The most recent exhibit, Mystical Landscapes, is a wonderfully curated exhibit. We have been back twice to see it. It has proved so popular it was extended and we may go back a third time. But the rest of the permanent exhibits are also worth the trip. The collection spans the ages and is well organized. The gift shop and... More
