Art Gallery of Ontario

Art Gallery of Ontario

A world-class art institution with works on display ranging from the 1st century to today, the Art Gallery of Ontario will be a true treat for your student group no matter what your trip focus is.

The AGO’s acclaimed collection includes over 90,000 works of art, and the building is one Toronto’s architectural gems – designed by world-renowned architect Frank Gehry.

Highlights of the AGO’s collection include:

  • One of the premier collections of Canadian art, featuring iconic paintings by Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven.
  • Traditional and contemporary works by Indigenous artists, including one of the world’s most important collections of Inuit sculpture.
  • The most renowned artists in history, including masterworks by Rodin, Monet, Degas, Picasso, Van Gogh and more.
  • The celebrated Thomson Collection of Canadian and European art, including the 17th-century masterpiece, The Massacre of the Innocents, by Peter Paul Rubens.
  • The world’s largest public collection of works by British sculptor Henry Moore.
  • An expansive collection of modern and contemporary works, photography, African and Oceanic art, and works on paper from the 15th century to present.

In addition, the AGO’s specially ticketed exhibitions are always must-see events. Right now (Fall 2017) you can see Guillermo del Toro: At Home with Monsters - a fearsome yet artful display of objects that have inspired the legendary film director.

Programs for student groups include private tours, artmaking workshops and more. Group dining options include the award-winning AGO Bistro and casual self-serve dining at caféAGO.
