Admittedly, this museum is not directly in Toronto, but rather the village of Kleinburg. Here is what justifies the drive 40 minutes north of Toronto: it is situated in a beautiful woodland setting that will rival any outdoors oriented photo. It also is filled to the brim with a magnificent collection of Canadian and native art. Items of note include landscapes by the Group of Seven, who are famous landscape artists who used dramatic colours to record the Canadian wilderness in the 1920s. There are also fine collections of First Nations and Inuit art. If you don't have your own set of wheels, a bus service departs for the McMichael Gallery from many hotels in downtown Toronto.
