First time in many, many, many years that I have been here. Not sure why I waited so long as it was a great visit. Many things to see and do, free guided tours, very clean, very impressive. Next time I won't wait so long.

We came here specifically for the Florine Stettheimer show, which was wonderful, but wandered throughout the museum and enjoyed it all. Also got exercise going up and down the big spiral stairway that magically goes from inside to outside.

Whilst the museum is good disappointed that they need to charge when compared with some other big museums and galleries that are free of charge bringing art to the masses.

Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the
largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas
Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a
wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs
and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun.
Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with
people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and
products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces
