The exhibits were wonderful and there are plenty of opportunities for interactive kids programs. The facility and staff are very accommodating and it is wheelchair friendly. Early in the day is better for lower crowd volume. I thought the admission price was very reasonable.

The museum is good by North American standards. It has a little bit of everything. I found the gemstone rock and mineral room outstanding.

Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its
most stylish high-rise residences and heritage
buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden
arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel
from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of
the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools,
jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill
Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and
