  • A building full of history and treasures. A great place to spend the day. So much too see . New limited time exhibits just add to the fun and keep you coming back. Have attended twice now their Friday Night Live events which is spectacular! For what you pay it’s worth it. Select exhibits are open for you meander through ... special live performances based on the theme of the night. Second floor is the dance floor area giving it a club vibe. Food vendors .. and bars .. No dress code really ... some come in jeans while others dress up more. Great vibes!
  • This museum is definitely one of the must-see places in Toronto. The good news is that the third Tuesday of every month in Winter, it's free to public. It's just a couple of steps away from Museum subway station. The sections in the museum are mind blowing if you are a history person. The fossils and paleontology section is incredible. By the way, there are sections pertaining to all continents and important historic places and eras.
