If I could give the AGO 10 stars, I would. It is simply excellent. I spent over four hours there recently, and still only grazed the surface. There are exhibits for every interest and taste. I enjoyed seeing "Every. Now. Then: Reframing Nationhood," a contemporary...More

We came for the Georgia O'Keefe exhibit and were not disappointed. The quality of the paintings and the commentary was first-rate. We particularly liked the fact that the exhibit touched on the full scope of her life and the backstory of her life. A must-see.

First off, let me say that the AGO itself, the building, is beautiful, and well worth the visit if you haven't seen it since its rejuvenation. Plus, many of the permanent exhibits (on Canadiana, for example) are things you could spend days going through. However,...More
