Visit to the AGO

The AGO (Art Gallery of Ontario) is a remarkable institution especially because it is a Provincial Gallery. It is world class.

It is also an important piece of? Toronto’s architecture having? just undergone a massive expansion designed by world renowned architect Frank Gehry. ( A Toronto native by the way.)

The Gallery also boasts the world’s largest collection of sculptures by the British master Sir Henry Moore. Because of his affection for Toronto, the artist bequeathed his entire personal collection to the AGO.

One of the most important cultural events we conduct at our hostel is a visit to the Gallery.? On certain evenings, entrance is free (regular admission about $20) and we take a group on these nights.

The Gallery is located a mere three blocks from our front door and easy walk – especially for backpackers!
