Pandemic times have changed everything for everyone, and the AGO has moved a bit to adapt. I like to visit galleries now that it is not crowded due to social distancing strategies and the community ri...
The AGO has reopened with restrictions: you need to get a timed entrance ticket, and each room is limited in the number of people allowed. As a result the experience is better than it has often been i...
Good representation of Group of Seven Canadian artists
Impressive gallery with good old European masters and Canadian famous painters. A lot of space wasted on modern art nonsense that anyone could emulate. The atrium space is very impressive stretching t...
We are really lucky to have the AGO in toronto. The exhibits are almost always great, it is an architecturally beautiful and interesting building...the restaurant next door is nice...I love the events...
If you love the arts you mustn’t miss the Art Gallery of Ontario.
Get a feel of Toronto’s arts and culture at the Art Gallery of Ontario, check out the art exhibitions here!
The gallery’s collection comprises over 40,000 pieces, and you can get a real feel for the cultural flavor of a top collection.
I absolutely love one spiral staircase inside the gallery. Constructed in glued laminated timber, the spiral staircase is a spectacular highlight of the gallery’s wooden construction.
Local teachers bring their students to see the exhibitions here. Sitting together in a circle, they absorb the spirit of individual expression and free innovation from an artist’s point of view. In this sanctuary of the arts, we get to see the whole seemingly familiar world with a brand new perspective.
Opening hours: 10:00 AM - 5:30 PM (closed Mondays, extended to 8:30 PM on Wednesdays)
The Ontario Art Gallery, located next to Chinatown in Toronto, is also a must-see for travel. The exterior of the museum has a glass-like style, and even if it passes by, it will be attracted by the appearance of the building. The museum has a museum night for free visits. I really like the style of paintings here, from the works of 100 AD to contemporary works of art. There is also a wooden spiral staircase in the entire exhibition hall, with a big red balloon, adding a sense of romance.
