Toronto - Lifestyle & Culture
Ontario Science Centre, Don Mills Road
The city’s venerable Science Centre may be 40 years old, but it’s still at the forefront of technology, and its interactive, jaw-dropping exhibits and gadgets still have the power to impress young and old alike. Themed floors (Communication, Sport, Human Body and The Living Earth) reveal the wonders of the natural world, and the Omnimax Theatre brings it all alive in thrilling 3D.
Art Gallery Toronto, Dundas Street
A storehouse of wonders, the Art Gallery Toronto - designed by Toronto’s own Frank Gehry - contains more than 5,000 works of European and American art in 110 galleries, and magnificent views of the city from its organic, glass-walled shell
Royal Ontario Museum, Queens Park
The city’s most visited attraction, and a fail-safe for inquisitive minds, the ROM really deserves a full day to do its expansive collections any justice. With six million objects in its collections and 40 galleries of art, archeology and natural science, this is no ordinary museum. The stunning new Michael Lee-Chin Crystal galleries offer six permanent collection galleries featuring dinosaurs and mammals, the cultures of South and Central Asia, Africa, the American continents, the Asia-Pacific region (including Oceania) along with textiles and costumes from around the world. And the museum’s gem collection will delight those addicted to a little sparkle.
