It's a tiny place more like a store; couple of small stories with stuff sparsely filling the floor. Takes just half an hour to go through the whole thing.

It's worth getting a 3Pass which allows half price entry into the Bata Shoe museum, the Gardiner and the Textile museum. The textile and special exhibits are certainly worth a look as they are very visually appealing. I especially liked Worlds on a String which...More

I was a little bit disappointed here. Only part of the museum was open so I received a reduction in the entrance fee, but wasn't very inspired with what I did see. It's set up for meetings, workshops etc and has a good shop.

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip

with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
