Such a great way to spend an hour or more when in Toronto. So many great exhibits in this summer, I recently saw the Wolfgang Tillman exhibit and really enjoyed the more contemporary take on gallery displays. The AGO has always included diverse artis.. Read more »

Great place! We spent 5 hours there and only covered a small portion of the place. I loved the Indigenous art section! They also had one of the Group of Seven member's pieces of art. Also, they had an ivory section that featured a lot of intrica.. Read more »
We had a great time. Enjoyed the Mary Cassatt exhibit, Henry Moore sculptures and the best display of miniature wooden ships I've ever seen.
Super fun! Easy to get lost. But amazing art and they always have great exhibits. I gave only 4/5 because the main attractions that were there that I really wanted to see were down due to "technical issues"
Gorgeous museum. The design of it, especially the staircases, is as good as the art. I was introduced to the iconic paintings of the Group of Seven and the modern sculptures of Henry Moore. They are revered Canadian artists, but I never heard of them.. Read more »
Must visit if you love contemporary art! The art gallery itself so beautiful with the spiral stairs. Huge display of art from history as well as the modern art. Bonus is the under 25 free entry pass( get it online only takes a few minutes).
Where do I even begin?! I got to the gallery at 3pm, thinking 2.5hrs would be enough time to finish the exhibit. (The gallery closes at 5:30pm) Spoiler alert: it wasn’t. I barely made it through the first floor alone. ? will definitely be ba.. Read more »
We went to this museum on a weekday and it was still a little busy but still nice. When you’re below 25, you have to register to an annual pass which is free but still takes up a few minutes. The museum in itself was not really my favorite beca.. Read more »
Very enjoyable afternoon. Large open spaces with gorgeous works of art displayed in a way which allows one to walk and view at a pace you set yourself. Guided tours are available for those who enjoy hearing the history and stories behind the painti.. Read more »
I spent approximately four hours in the museum just checking out the ground floor. There were four other levels that I didn't have the time to visit. There's A LOT to see here. It's worth it. Just make sure you have ample time to make .. Read more »
Great gallery. Very pleased at the wide selection of art in the collection, including Canadian art, Indigenous art, and foreign art. The temporary exhibits are also well done. It’s also always free for people under 25, which is a great way t.. Read more »
AGO is amazing! If you like museums I recommend you to buy the annual pass and come back in different days. I only could see two exhibitions and I was tired already (after walking throughout the city). The shop has a lot of cool things and local arti.. Read more »
Went for the first time on free night Wednesdays. It was really nice! I am not an art person, but it was fun just wandering about and I got my steps in. There are cool, overpriced, nifty items in the gift shop that I recommend checking out. I only sa.. Read more »

Beautiful paintings, sculptures, artifacts, mediums, architecture, and creations. Really enjoyed my time here, it was very peaceful. So many stories packed into each room, it would take hours to just get through one section if you really read and app.. Read more »
My happy place! Steps away from the office, this is always an oasis during lunch time - when crowds are sparse and space is empty for personal enjoyment. Happy to be a member and support this space. Highly recommend membership - it includes excellent.. Read more »

Amazing, good prices. Very nice staff! Very cool and fantastic art pieces! You could be there all day, there is so many cool things to look at. Amazing place to go with your family.
Beautifully designed building, never over crowded due to good management at the desks. Gift shop is ace, providing a broad range, especially in regards to books ? The department of Christian artifacts is by far the best collection in the Gallery by m.. Read more »

I’ve visited the AGO since I was a child and it holds a special place in my heart. The architecture is something else - perfectly reflects the beautiful art inside. Gift shop is full of great items and each temporary exhibit always has an excel.. Read more »
I’ve been visiting the AGO for years, ever since I was a child. Whether it’s seeing new installations or featured, limited-time specials or revisiting old favourites that are permanently open to the public, it’s one of those places .. Read more »
So the year pass is nearly the same price lol as a day pass. Might as well right! Anyway this place also has a drawing room for all old prints and you can sign them out for free! If you like to draw and your not part of a school or anything but just .. Read more »
I’ve been here probably over 20 times in my life. It never gets old and you could never have enough time to look and read everything just because there is so much to see!! On top of that they do update sections as well over the years. I highly .. Read more »
I love the Art Gallery of Ontario and cannot wait for it to reopen. I have had the pleasure of visiting the Art Gallery of Ontario only once but it was an amazing experience. The space was stunning, beautiful to get lost in a walk around. The exhi.. Read more »
Building was very impressive, lots of galleries with some chairs to sit in. Nice little coffee bar in the amazing building-length atrium. Some of the modern stuff I think is junk - if I could produce a reasonable facsimile it's not fine art! Fre.. Read more »
The Art Gallery of Ontario is one of the best of its kind in Canada. The collection is large, varied, well chosen and beautifully exhibited. This is not one of those museums that crowd their walls and open spaces with works of art to make an impressi.. Read more »
One of my favourite places in the entire world. Such a worldly variety of art spanning from the 1300's to current day. I'm always impressed by their temporary exhibitions as well as their permanent collection. Always a perfect place to gain.. Read more »
This museum was bigger than what I expected it to be. I loved the contemporary art and indigenous artists sections. It can take about 3 hours to see all of the works there.
Very nice enjoyable will go back again
Great place to visit for the day and the bistro is fabulous too.
Social distancing in place. Feel quite safe inside.
I love the art gallery of ontario. Never fails to disappoint.
I went with my friend who's a fine artist, specializing in art history and curatorial practices. It was good to have someone explain the contexts behind the work we saw. Without her explaining the lives and intentions of the artists the museum w.. Read more »
Free 1 year membership for everyone from 18-25? You gotta be kidding!

The AGO had a wonderful collection of modern and impressionist art, as well as rotating exhibits. It felt large enough to feel substantial, but small enough that we felt we could view in an afternoon. The real star of the show at AGO though is the fa.. Read more »
