This was a very surprising, but lovely museum! It's self-guided with a booklet, which includes photo's. It allowed me to revisit it once I was home!

If you are in the area, this is a great little tucked away exhibit of Inuit art. The best thing about it is that it is free, so if you can take a few minutes to find the place, it will take about 15 minutes to check out the collection. This is the kind of attraction that you tack onto... More

Firstly, there is a review below which states that this place is no longer free and refers to a museum shop - I think this reviewer must have been to the other museum of Inuit art in Toronto as the TD Gallery is definitely free and does not have a shop! I got pretty lost trying to find the TD... More

This is a hidden gem for sure, though its not free anymore. If you are interested in the far north of Canada, its hard to find information anywhere in the south so I really loved this museum for offering a window into the culture, outstanding carvings and other hand-made pieces, and some information about how art is used for economic...

It's basically a small collection of glass-cased pieces in the lobby and mezzanine of the TD building. The pros: it's free, there are some really nice pieces, it's dead quiet except for the elevator dinging. The cons: it's tiny, the exhibits are crammed together so tightly you can't really appreciate them, not a lot of info about the pieces or... More

TD Bank in downtown Toronto has an outstanding collection of Inuit art, mostly carvings. The collection of almost 200 pieces are beautifully displayed and the gallery is free. A treasure for anyone who appreciates native art.

A hidden gem in Toronto's financial district close to King and Wellington and behind the Royal York Hotel. Small free gallery with an extraordinary Inuit sculpture collection that TD Bank started collecting in the early 60s. The small ivories and bone are really a surprise but the larger works are amazing too.

I thought I'd add a third review to raise the profile of this hidden gem. Is soapstone a gem? - probably not. This gallery is located in the lobby of one of the TD Towers on Wellington. If you are near Union Station or Royal York Hotel - you are near this place. Pick up a gallery guide brouchure on... More

This is a small free gallery located in the lobby and the mezzanine of the TD building. There are many high quality pieces of art here and it is definately worth a 20 minute wander through.

Staying in Downtown West

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
