  • We enjoyed the exhibit of furniture and devices through time very much. I was very surprised at the size, very very small. I also expected more exhibits and architecture to do with the former stock ex...  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.

  • Love this place! My kid takes classes here (Homeschool Design) and she enjoys them so much. The teachers are so nice and every project is very cool!
  • Design and Finance The first building of Toronto Stock Exchange is now the DX where creative displays and events occur. Beautiful murals showing industries traded in public stock markets are embedded above the former trading floor: transportation and technology, infrastructure, construction and agriculture. Talks, events and exhibitions happen regularly for free and fee. The new TSX moved to another building at 130 King west and is stall tower with a modern trading floor and ticker board.
  • The Design Exchange is another very nice museum that is dedicated exclusively to the pursuit of design excellence and preservation of design heritage. The museum is conveniently located inside the Old Toronto Stock Exchange building and has been quite nicely preserved. Furthermore, during my visit, I also saw the Peggy Sue Collection which was on exhibit. I want to personally Thank Nina and Olga for giving ME a very nice tour and helping me make my Youtube Video as well back on Friday, December 22, 2017.
