When it first opened in 1900, the AGO was known as the Art Museum of Toronto. In 1919 it was renamed the Art Gallery of Toronto and it kept that title until 1966, when it acquired its current name. The AGO is located off of Dundas Street West, between McCaul and Beverley Streets, in the heart of west downtown Toronto.
The Art Gallery of Ontario is one of the largest in North America and its collection boasts nearly 100,000 pieces of artwork that represent the first century through to the present day. It also hosts the Thomson collection, donated by Ken Thomson, which added roughly 2000 pieces of artwork to the museum’s collection. The highlight of the Thomson collection is Peter Paul Rubens’ The Massacre of the Innocents, painted in the 17th century.
If you’re at the AGO for research purposes, you’ll want to check out the E.P. Taylor Library & Archives, which includes over 300,000 volumes. Its hours are more limited than the general Art Gallery of Ontario.
The AGO recently announced two upcoming exhibits that are of particular note— Haegue Yang’s exhibition, Haegue Yang: Emergence (spring 2020) and Andy Warhol (spring 2021). All visitors aged 25 and under can enter the art gallery free of charge and a yearly pass only costs $35. A day pass is $25 for those over the age of 25.
