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.
The museum is small and well worth the visit. Several interesting displays. Good bookstore and lots and lots of wonderful items in the gift shop. I bought a tea cozy. Paula got a scarf and presents. Lots of things for kids.

Excellent exhibition called Bliss - Gardens Real & Imagined. Tapestries, wall hangings, rugs, cloths, jackets, kimonos, amazing things from the 18th, 19th & 20th centuries, from Iran, Turkey, Japan, England, France, Canada, China, India. Highly recommended. Showing until Sept. 18, 2016.

I went with my mother who in general would be someone who loves this sort of thing and we were done in 15mins. Nothing that one would say is of historical significance which I question with our rich first nations history. Ladies do not bring...More
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
