This is a good place to come with a group of kids, they get to learn about art and technique and go away with something they've made themselves. A great learning experience

We visited to see a special exhibition of Panamanian artifacts from 100 years ago. Very interesting. We also perused their porcelain collection - fabulous. While there we had an enjoyable lunch in their restaurant. Highly recommended.

I always enjoy a visit to the Gardiner. Went specifically to see a special exhibit on Panama which was so well-curated and interesting. It's a small museum but the building is light and airy and the permanent exhibits beautifully displayed. The restaurant is excellent.

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
