Tips

  • Did you know that the AGO's spiral staircase, designed by Frank Gehry, is purposefully narrow so that people could bump into each other and fall in love. Ahhh!
  • Wednesday nights from 6 to 8:30 p.m., visitors can enjoy our permanent collection FREE of charge!
  • The largest art gallery in Canada and home to the worlds largest collection of sculptures by Henry Moore. Explore by yourself or go on a guided tour, then dine/drink at cafAGO or Frank Restaurant.
  • Redesigned in 2008 by Frank Gehry, this museum houses more than 80,000 pieces that span from 16th Century Dutch masters to early 20th Century photographers to Post Modernists.
  • We love the Art Gallery of Ontario... for the art exhibitions and for their restaurant Frank. Make sure to swing into the restaurant for a bite if you're hungry!
  • Reno is great. Don't miss the model ships on the lower floor.
  • Visit Henry Moore Sculpture Centre on Level 2 (Room 251). You'll enjoy it!
  • Le wifi de ce muse dchire grave ! Un bon endroit pour surfer sur internet quand vous tes l'tranger. Evidemment, les oeuvres sont visiter d'abord ;-)
  • At $CA 25 it is the most I have paid for entrance at a museum. But it boasts an impressive collection thanks to its founders, benefactors and private collections that were once enjoyed by a lucky few.
  • Admission is free every Wednesday between 6 and 8:30, but entry lines are often long, so arrive early.
  • While they look like wood they are actually REALLY comfy chairs! Try them.
  • Take photos.
  • On Wednesday evenings from 6:00 to 8:30pm admission to the gallerys permanent collection is free.
  • Abstract Expressionists exhibit is great! Very interesting.
  • The architecture of this place is just amazing!
  • Cool architecture, more art than can be viewed in one visit and great children's activity center.
  • The AGO App provides a great way to understand the exhibits while you are looking at them using the tour feature. But be warned, not all the exhibits it will guide you to will actually be on display.
  • The Vow (2012), which stars Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum, is filmed in many places in Toronto. The lovers exchange their vows at a guerilla wedding staged in the AGO.
  • Admire Ghery's architecture or the art exhibits, always great. They have free tours with a guide to various exhibits. very informative. Check their website for timings.
  • Free on Wednesdays. Nice way to unwind after work.
