We were unfamiliar with this man and his unusual collecting passion and so prepared to be disappointed. We need not to have been wary. Our visit was both unsettling but equally mesmerizing. The cinematic related material was fascinating as we are both movie buffs and...More

Expansive museum with an emphasis on contemporary visual arts on upper two floors, including contemporary and 20th century Canadian artists who may be less known elsewhere. Admission is free on Wednesdays after 6:00 pm, which provides its own interesting scene.

Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the

Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a
wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs
and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun.
Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with
people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and
products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces
