    The building itself it beautiful and has interesting architecture. The art collection is less impressive. The collections felt sparse and erratically organized. For example, when I asked where I could find pieces from the impressionist era the response was "oh, they are sort of all over the place". Not the best system!
    I did like that they have a couple rooms with paintings displayed in the style of traditional salons (hundreds of paintings crammed onto one wall). But, these were inadequately labeled; paintings were hung without name tags and the...Read More

    One of my favourite places to go in Toronto...amazing place, great atmosphere and continuously changing exhibits. Member events are an added bonus and make the annual membership more than worth it.

    What a wonderful experience. Walking distance from union station. Lots of exciting art and the Michelangelo exhibit was fantastic.

    Pretty cool gallery. Enjoyed the Monet Van Goghs and Picasso's. Did not enjoy being hit on by the elder man selling tickets.

I did like that they have a couple rooms with paintings displayed in the style of traditional salons (hundreds of paintings crammed onto one wall). But, these were inadequately labeled; paintings were hung without name tags and the printed cards with names and details on the paintings were nowhere to be found most of the time.
The price tag (20 or so dollars) is too high given that the museum doesn't house any real gems, is rather bare, and is awkwardly laid out. Go on the first Wednesday of the month during the evening if you just want to pop in and not spend too much time here - it's free!
