Art Gallery of Ontario

Art Gallery of Ontario

The renowned Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) is one of North America’s largest museums. The more than 95,000-piece collection comprises works from all over the world, from European masterpieces to contemporary art, as well as an excellent collection of Canadian art, including a large collection of Group of Seven works. Throughout the year, a succession of temporary exhibitions are held.

On the west side of the city centre, the AGO is housed in a unique-looking building with a combination of older and modern architecture. The Ontario College of Art and Design, which stands high above the street on stilts that resemble pencils, is just next to the AGO.
