An international landmark, the AGO is also one of Canada’s most innovative cultural destinations. Highlights of the Gallery’s world-class collection include iconic Canadian and Inuit works, along with European and contemporary art – all on view in a spectacular building transformed by renowned Toronto-born architect Frank Gehry. After spending time with the AGO’s vast collection, be sure to enjoy a meal or glass of wine at the Gallery’s award-winning restaurant FRANK.

Reviewed 11 March 2012

Wonderful!!!
I had the best tour guide, the tour should have been 30min, but we were having so much fun she extended it to 1 hour.
Suggest a tour so you can get the quick insights on the major rooms.

“Wonderful exhibits”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

This place is a gem. Lots of beautiful exhibits. The Old Masters gallery is stunning. My only complaint is the haphazard way Paul Peel's painting are jumbled together. Some are too high to see. A very disrepectful treatment for a wonderful artist.

“A real treasure in Toronto”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

The AGO is stunning architecturally, but also displays a great amount of local and international art in a great environment. It makes 'art' accessible and fun.
