A must-see if you are in Toronto. Their collection of contemporary art is fantastic (just think of their cubist paintings, or of the Moore galleries.) The Gehry flair is wherever in the building, so you would enjoy it even if you do not like very...More

We never explored our own city until this past weekend. We went to the AGO and we were delighted by the beautiful art pieces inside. We paid extra to see the mystical landscapes exhibit. It was busy but worth the trip.

We bought tickets to the Impressionist exhibit which advertised Monet and VanGogh. There were only 2 VanGogh paintings. A good amount of Monet. But the exhibit seemed to have a lot of their Group of Seven collection mixed in. Disappointing. The rest of the AGO...More

Visited "Mystical Landscapes" special exhibition. It was most enjoyable, well thought out with great art and knowledgable commentary. For price of the special exhibition you get to see all the rest if you have the time.

We looked at the Canadian galleries, this time, the African art collection, the Moore room and the long Italian gallery with four children - 4-10. All enjoyed themselves, as well as the children's area with tons of activities for small people.

It depends on what interests you and if you take one of the guided tours. I would say the minimum would be 2 hours, yet it would be very easy to spend 3+ hours there.
