One of those places that people question you about going to, but love it when they get there. It has been freshened up since my last visit several years ago and remains a great attraction, especially the second floor.

This museum is very small in comparison to the ROM (across the street) or the AGO (just couple of subway stops away). Yet, the exhibits are really interesting, tastefully selected and have great detail that you can really admire. Throughout the year, the museum hosts...More

Unless you really like ceramics, this museum is enjoyable for a quick spin - especially of the tea sets upstairs. Very nice staff throughout the museum, and very helpful, but this felt like a niche collection that didn't have as much popular appeal as the...More

Downtown
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
