This is one of the top three art galleries in the country, the others being in Ottawa and Montreal. Though not the Louvre, it is excellent, and unless you have a lot of stamina, you’ll need more than one trip to see it all. The arts gallery at 317 Dundas St W, two blocks west of University Ave, houses works (mainly paintings) from the 14th century to the present.

There is also a Canadian section and rooms are changing exhibitions, which can sometimes be the highlight of a visit. The AGO is best known for its vast Henry Moore sculpture collection- one room holds about 20 of his major sculptures of the human form.
There is a cafeteria or pricey restaurant if you need a break and an excellent shop selling books, posters, crafts and jewellery. At the door, pick up a schedule of the gallery films, lectures, performances and concerts.

From May to October the art gallery is open from noon to 9 pm Tuesday to Friday and from 10 am to 5.30 pm Saturday, Sunday and holidays. The rest of the year, it is also Mondays throughout the year.
Admission is pay what you can ($5 suggested, students and seniors $4). The excellent special shows, which run very regularly, are $10 and include the regular gallery.
Cinematheque Ontario regularly screens top-quality cinema form around the world in Jackman Hall.
