As can be expected from one of the most diverse cities in the world, Toronto is awash with museums and galleries. A good place to start is the Royal Ontario Museum, where you can get to grip with the cultural and natural history of Canada. From dinosaurs to Ancient Egypt, precious gems to Canada’s first people, the museum offers an incredible opportunity to learn more about our place on Earth.
Presiding over Toronto’s skyline is the CN Tower, officially one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World. Built in 1976, and standing at 1,818 feet tall, the CN Tower may have lost its status as the world’s tallest building, but it is still incredible to be hold and is one of Toronto’s most significant monuments. With your feet on terra firma, the tower’s scale is staggering – particularly at night when it is illuminated. A climb to the lower viewing deck will reward you with incredible views of Toronto. If you are seeking a once-in-a-lifetime experience and have a head for heights, try out the EdgeWalk, the world’s highest full-circle, hands-free walk. Those brave enough are tethered to an overhanging safety rail and can walk the ledge surrounding the tower’s main pod.
Hockey in Canada isn’t just a sport, it is one of the nation’s defining features. During winter, dozens of ice rinks spring up throughout the city, as inhabitants brave the freezing temperatures to indulge in their favourite sport. Constructed in 1886, the Hockey Hall of Fame is an incredible piece of architecture, covering over 65,000 feet and featuring a stunning stained-glass dome and intricate stone carvings. Here, visitors can experience an interactive, fun-filled adventure, where they can test their skills, explore the game’s rich history and meet Toronto’s hockey heroes.
