Stunning works of art, full of beautiful works in an amazing building. Don't miss the coffee bar and don't miss the amazing collection of Henry Moore maquettes. Probably more big Moores in one room than any other gallery. Brilliant.

A world-class art museum for a world-class city. The building itself grew over time with various architects; the most recent addition is by Frank Gehry, and what a wonderful un-Gehryesque job he did. The spiral staircase rises above the city. The museum itself, as you...More

Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the

Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a
wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs

Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with

I have 10 hours layover in Toronto airport. How do I get to AGO using public transportation from the airport? I see the bus fare is rather steep ($50+ per person for a return trip). Maybe it is worth renting a car for the day for two people. What is the cost for parking on a Sunday near the museum?
