What To Expect

Art Gallery of Ontario
In 2002, Ken Thomson's generous gift of 2,000 remarkable works of Canadian and European art inspired Transformation AGO, an innovative architectural expansion by world-renowned architect Frank Gehry. Completed in 2008, Transformation AGO resulted in one of the most critically acclaimed architectural achievements in North America. Highlights include Galleria Italia, a gleaming showcase of wood and glass running the length of an entire city block, and the often-photographed spiral staircase, beckoning visitors to explore. A day spent wandering these wondrous halls will fill you with an appreciation for art and architecture. With each visit is the opportunity to learn something new or experience one of the ever changing exhibitions.

Just great

The quality of some exhibits is outstanding and we happily spent nearly two hours on the first floor and the lower ship exhibition. The entry process was simple and staff all friendly. Well-recommended,
Art across the centuries
PavlaPavla, 03-01-2023
In this gallery you can find an amazing collection of art across the centuries. Canadian fine art is represented here by the extensive Group of Seven collection. You can see the works of Pablo Picasso, Auguste Renoir, Edgar Degas or Peter Paul Rubens here, which is absolutely amazing.
The exhibition of historical ship models is also worth to visit.
Go for the Annual Pass if you are in Toronto for a few days!

This place is fantastic; the exhibits are always compelling and it is a nice place to be. Regular admission costs $25 but an annual pass is $35. Every time I'm in Toronto, I get the annual pass and come and go as I please. In November 2022, I was in Toronto for 5 days and I was able to enjoy the city and when I had down time, take a quick trip to the AGO. One visit was 3 hours... another was 30 minutes... the annual pass gives you so much flexibility!
Special exhibits
FuzzyBeaver, 24-11-2022
We visit mostly to see the special exhibits. Our favourite exhibit was "What Matters Most: Photographs of Black Life". It was such an interesting perspective of life in the that era. Be sure to watch the video projection of the slides. The large size allows you to see more detail and it also contains many additional photos. The "Ed Pien: Present: Past/Future" was fascinating especially the video interviews. The "Her Flesh" exhibit is tiny but quite interesting. The Denyse Thomasos exhibit really did not work for us. The OAG is great for not only the permanent exhibits but the wealth of ongoing special exhibits.
Excellent Gallery
Michael A, 29-10-2022
A great collection for a big, diverse, sophisticated city. From european classics to heartwarming Canadiana (LOTS of Group of Seven here!), ancient old religious paintings from the 1200's, an amazing collection of miniatures, abstract art, modern, a pretty wonderful Henry Moore sculpture gallery space, it has lots to see and do. Bonus - the exterior/interior stairways on the south side, and extending into the Walker court from the top floor modern galleries, both have interesting views of the city - take a look!
Ps - the "espresso" bar in galleria Italia is expensive, and has poor espresso. Sadly, they get 1 star for drab, tasteless espresso.
What a missed opportunity!
