Sometimes the special exhibits are not very good but I found this one particularly interesting. It deals with the Scandinavian influence in Canada. It covers many mediums. Who knew how much we were influenced. Of course the rest of the museum is worth a visit...More

We booked a clay class as part of team building for our office retreat. We had some instruction but most was left to our imagination and creativity. We also enjoyed some of the exhibits on the way in and the way out. Beautiful spot.

The museum has a great collection of ceramics. I was particularly interested in the maiolica. There was also an impressive collection of commedia dell'arte figurines. A great morning.

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to

I'm sorry I don't have these - maybe you could contact the museum itself. It was very well-curated
