    As one who enjoys and appreciates photography, I was enthusiastic about seeing the 'Wildlife Photographer of the Year' exhibit at the ROM. My enthusiasm was more than rewarded by the beautiful and often breathtaking photos of animals, birds, sea life and plants. I can only begin to imagine how the photographers managed to achieve such wonderful and insightful shots. The show was not simply a collection of photos. It was a warning as to how our human ways are endangering many species and habitats. Each photo was accompanied by a text describing what the subject was as well as how it and its habitat was endangered by human activity. I would term the exhibit as enjoyable and impressive. A must see.

    Being waiting years to visit this place and I was not disappointed, the amount of history from the sport that was in this building was exceptional, and displayed brilliantly. I especially enjoyed taking shots at a virtual goalie and then also being the keeper which was amazing, even my wife who is only recently into ice hockey enjoyed and the highlight of my day was having my photo with the Stanley cup and seeing various other trophy as well, you will not be disappointed when visiting this place.

    When in Toronto, a visit to the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) is well worth the time and the price of admission. This is an impressive art museum, where a minimum of two hours should be set aside to fully appreciate it.

    One of my favourite spots for an enriching and enjoyable afternoon of learning in cosmopolitan Toronto.
    Quiet and serene setting, beautiful gardens, awe inspiring exhibits.
    Always worth a visit. For a special treat, have a meal at the in house restaurant ‘Divan’

    My husband and I have been saying for a while we wanted to visit so we deiced to go for our wedding anniversary this year.
    From the moment I booked the ticket to when we left every one was extremely helpful. I booked the tickets online but accidentally wrote the wrong email address I emailed Black Creek and got a reply with my tickets attached. Once we got the village every one we spoke to was extremely helpful and informative. Everyone told us information about the part of the village we were in.
    We were both surprised about the size of the village, we thought it was smaller. We had a wonderful few hours walking around and speaking to people who work there. Lovely way to spend our anniversary. Thank you

    Wonderful mansion to go in for a tour as a supplementary attraction after finishing with the Casa Loma. And best of all, it’s free!

    It’s unfortunate that there is no self-guided touring allowed, and the guided tour only lasts about an hour at most. That is where I have to take one star off.

    I recommend visiting earlier so that there aren’t too many people crowding in.

    Even if you have only a casual interest in ceramics, you'll be able to while away an hour or so at this specialty museum. That it was free admission the day we visited made it even more enjoyable!

    Unfortunately there were renovations going on at the Science Centre so had to take a shuttle around to the back entrance. With that we were unable to see anything on the first or second floor.
    What we did get to see Floor 4-6 was really cool. We made it there to see the Van De Graaf demonstration! There is plenty to see and do as it is interactive. Recommend to those 5 to 95! Plan to stay 3-4 hours minimum!

    We didn't plan to visit the museum, but the outdoor (free) trains were fun to watch and board, so we thought that there were more fun activities waiting inside. We were disappointed to see that there were no children activities other than a few coloring sheets. The place was pretty small and we finished in about 30 minutes, but for $30 for a family of 4 it's fine.

    Very interesting fort. This fort saw some of the earliest formations of Canada. During the war of 1812 verse fort took part in a number of battles. It was destroyed once. It was rebuilt and probably had a significant impact on the way Canada was formed. And the buildings in the history is still there.

    Excellent exhibits finely curated though aimed at adults there are programs developed for other segments. Shop has been dumbed down. One of the few institutions to focus on process as well as outcome/works. Like McCord small footprint impressive experience.

    I visited Mackenzie House to join its (ghost) storytelling activity and for some history-packed fun on a winter day. This is the last home of Toronto's first mayor, for many, is the city's most haunted house. Sitting in a dimly lit room built in 1830, with only candle lights, sipping apple cider and munching cheese shortbread, I got this unique chance to listen to ghost stories written in 1863. Also tried the Washington Press, one of the oldest printing presses in Canada, to print a lovely new year card for myself. 😚

    I went here on a walking tour. Interesting architecture and worth the visit if you are nearby but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it.
