Toronto’s sights, activities and attractions are as numerous as they are diverse, with many of them centred around the city’s buzzing downtown district.

In a city not short of prestigious arts institutions, the Bau-Xi Gallery certainly holds its own among a busy crowd. First established in Vancouver back in 1965 to provide much-needed exposure for Canadian artists on the US West Coast, it later expanded it reach, opening a location in Toronto and in doing so allowing for national representation for artists in two of the country’s largest cities. Situated in the growing art hub of Dundas Street West, now home to an array of renowned galleries, the venue showcases contemporary Canadian and international artists in three gallery spaces which are open free to the public seven days a week.

Spanning everything from the age of dinosaurs to the art of the First Peoples to modern fashion, the world-renowned Royal Ontario Museum is a hotbed of art, global culture and natural history, attracting more than one million visitors every year. A jaw-dropping 13 million art objects and natural history specimens are spread over 40 gallery and exhibition spaces, with the museum hosting an ever-revolving schedule of exhibitions and events, including the summer-long Friday Night Live, which transforms its galleries into something closer to a nightclub than a cultural venue, complete with live DJs, food and drinks.
