We Only Came Here to Up Our Instagram Game

We Only Came Here to Up Our Instagram Game

Adam and I visited five different museums and galleries over the past month. We mostly went because we wanted something fun to do together, but the cool Instagram opportunities also contributed. I’d gone museum hopping with Shahrzad before and it was really fun, so I was really excited to visit all of these places.

Warhol Revisited

It’s a very small exhibit and both times I’ve been here I only walked around for about 15 minutes. Check out my other post on the exhibit here! It’s closing December 31st so if you haven’t gone yet, go see it ASAP.

Art Gallery of Ontario

I think the AGO is one of those places you can go to many times without getting bored (maybe unless you’re an OCAD student). The top floor was our favourite!

Royal Ontario Museum

I’d been wanting to see the Pompeii exhibit forever, and I finally got to see it (it’s closing January 3rd). Unfortunately I got more Snapchats than I did actual photos of Pompeii. We got to the ROM really late and were only able to see the dinosaurs, Chinese/Japanese artifacts, and Pompeii. The Pompeii exhibit was definitely my favourite one.

Gardiner Museum

We came here after the ROM because it was right across the street. We wanted to see the 12 Trees of Christmas exhibit, and we ended up running around the museum looking for all the trees because they were in different spots on different floors. I’m not sure if it’s an annual thing, but if they have it again next year, I definitely recommend checking it out!

Aga Khan Museum

Although it was very beautiful, we were expecting way more at Aga Khan. It was nice inside, but we weren’t allowed to take any photos. If you’re just coming here for the Instagram, your best opportunity is to take photos outside. Also be warned that parking isn’t free, it’s $10.

I managed to sneak a quick little pic.
