    We visited Saturday 29th July, the exhibit is very interesting for those interested in design. It is a small exhibit but there is no charge for visiting. The old trading floor on the 2nd floor is brea...  more »

    The collection itself does not call much attention, because it has few pieces, although count on products developed by icons like Frank Gehry-by the way, the architect has Canadian origin (born in Toronto, was the author of the project of the Royal Ontario Museum). So much so that in about half an hour it is possible to see all the exhibits. Worth the highlight being one of the very few museums of Toronto with free admission. Much of the visit can be justified for 2 reasons. First, to meet the building itself-an ancient building, with typology of the 40 and that was the headquarters of the Toronto Stock Exchange for almost 50 years. Another aspect for those who like history and architecture and that justifies the visit is to enjoy the surroundings. This historical building is located in a block of the financial district that was acquired by the Toronto Dominion Bank for construction of a building complex consisting of 7 buildings. In the process of selling, was required to the historic building was maintained, which is why the Toronto Dominion Centre was built around this historic building. And with a detail: the design of the TD Centre was developed by one of the masters of modernism-the German architect Mies Van der Rohe, one of the last projects completed before your death.

    A beautiful venue that is situated very close to Union Station. I attended our work Christmas party here and it was decorated beautifully. The space and 30 foot ceilings make it a stunning venue. One annoying thing is the bathrooms are not situated where the main hall is. You have to travel down the stairs into the main hall.

    We hosted our wedding @DX on October 9, 2016. Nothing but positive feedback. Special thank you to Michelle for all your efforts with me - and my planning needs. If your looking to host your wedding at a venue, that has a totally different feel - look no further. Still receiving compliments !! Amazing. Thanks. Just wanted to added to my post... Like I said above, I held my wedding at the Design Exchange on October 9, 2016 - (well over a month now) and a guest must have left a CASH gift for us during cocktail hr - and MIchelle called me to tell me that they found it ... I had no clue it was missing - I just said maybe the guest didn't provide a gift... but MIchelle called me to let me know my gift was there for pick up.. SUPER HONEST :) Thanks again!!!

    Always something fun going on. Went to the trade floor during Nuit Blanche 2016 and the 3rd floor for IKEA's anniversary exhibit.

Where to stay in Toronto

Most visitors stay in the historic neighborhood of Old Toronto, as the central district offers unparalleled access to the best attractions in the city and several metro stations within walking distance. If you're looking for a different taste of Toronto, stay in the trendy neighborhoods of West Queen West or King West Village, popular for their nightlife, arts, and cafe scenes. You can embrace Toronto's multicultural charms by staying in Chinatown, perhaps the city's best location for foodies.
