About the tour

Many of Toronto's most important museums, cultural buildings, and institutions are clustered in a 1/2 km corridor along Bloor Street West. Here, the city and the University of Toronto campus flow into and out of one another, providing the context for a delightful stroll. This "virtual museum crawl" includes the Royal Ontario Museum "Crystal" by Daniel Libeskind; the one-of-a-kind Bata Shoe Museum; Gardiner Museum of Ceramics- a "jewel-box of ceramic treasures "-- and the heritage Royal Conservatory of Music/Telus Centre. Philosopher's Walk, a treasured space that has evolved into a linear urban park, provides a delightful counterpoint to the bustling streetscape.

My husband Wilf and I really enjoyed our memories of Yorkville that you invoked. We've been Torontonians since 1969. Thanks, Margaret
