Always interesting rotating exhibitions and an incredibly vast and varied collection. The Gehry Architecture is pretty cool. Staff are friendly and aren't stuffy at all. Some laughably bad pieces of 'art', but I'm not a critic and know little about what artistic value a square on a giant blank canvas has. Either way there were some pieces that I thought were stunning and it is likely the best gallery in Canada.
Nice collection of Dutch golden age paintings. Georgia O'Keeffe exhibit was great, too. I thought the contemporary art was OK. I found it hard to navigate the museum due to the odd layout of the rooms. The map does not clearly mark what is in each room.
5 floors to explore at will, with top 2 changing every so often. Loved walking through for first time and seeing the modern art inspired by political issues in the last decade and more. A taste of Toronto art also resides here. Then onward to the lower floors of classic sculptures and beautiful paintings and if you are into it, ships. Can't wait to visit again! Don't miss the coffee shop, situated in a crescent-shaped, bright passage created by woodbeam semi-arches and expansive windows facing Dundas St.
I absolutely loved this place. Everything about AGO is beautiful. My friend and I got a little tour of our own by one of the security guards who happened to know so much about the history of the English.
This gallery has gone from a decent but slightly hum drum institution to one of my favourite places to see art in the city. Great shows, rotating works from the collection, fabulous new director, and lovely members lounge that is quiet and serves great food.. A welcome refuge from the busy city!!!
