It was a rainy day so it was crowded in the lineup to pay I was a little bit worried but it's such a big museum. Great exhibitions.

Really enjoyed our visit, it's nice to see something different so I especially enjoyed the Canadian section with the Group of Seven works. A bonus was the best muffin I've ever tasted in the café!
