  2. Royal Ontario Museum

    Canada’s foremost museum offers an excellent balance of art, archeology, science, and nature, and has more than six million artifacts in its collections .

  3. Ontario Science Centre

    Over 800 high-tech, interactive exhibits within 11 specially themed exhibition halls aim to make science fun and fascinating. Youthful visitors can navigate their way in a rocket chair, climb the rockwall, touch a tornado, and explore the hair-raising effects of electricity .

    Ontario Science Centre
  4. Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art

    The only museum in North America devoted solely to ceramics was founded in 1984 by private Canadian collectors George and Helen Gardiner to showcase their extraordinary collection of pre-Columbian American pottery and European porcelain. Recent additions include Asian ceramics and contemporary artwork .

  5. Design Exchange

    Located in the magnificent former Toronto Stock Exchange building, an Art Deco gem built in 1937, this center celebrates postwar Canadian design. Furniture, housewares, sportsgear, and medical equipment are among the items in the permanent collection and highlight the role of design in daily life. The center also hosts major national and international exhibitions. A gorgeous mural on the upstairs Trading Floor depicts Canadian industrial themes .

  6. Textile Museum of Canada

    A permanent collection of over 10,000 fabrics, quilts, ceremonial cloths, and carpets from around the world are housed in this small but excellent museum. Temporary contemporary exhibits round out the historical artifacts.

  8. Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery

    Known for its boundary-pushing exhibitions of contemporary Canadian and international art, this edgy, non-collecting gallery features rotating shows of consistently high quality. If the art sometimes mystifies visitors, at least the building is instantly recognizable: a brick smokestack tops the 1920s converted power station .

  9. Toronto Dominion Gallery of Inuit Art

    As Inuit tool makers turned their skills to sculpting, the culture experienced a renaissance, this time in artistic achievement. Most of the 200 pieces in this gallery specializing in postwar Inuit sculpture are carved soapstone, each evocative of the landscape, culture, and legends of the indigenous people of Canada’s harsh Arctic region. The gallery’s design echoes that of the TD Bank Tower, by renowned modernist architect Mies van der Rohe .

  10. Bata Shoe Museum

    This unusual building, resembling a stylized shoebox, houses more than 10,000 shoes, covering 4,500 years of footwear history. Artifacts represent an unparalleled range, from Ancient Egyptian funerary shoes (1500 BC) to 19th-century Nigerian camel-riding boots to Marilyn Monroe’s red leather pumps .
