Steps above the bustling St. Lawrence Market lies the Market Gallery – an intimate, historic exhibition space. What was once Toronto’s first purpose-built City Council Chambers now houses rotating exhibits that dive deep into the history of our city.

Drawing from the City’s extensive collection of fine art, historic artifacts, and archeological specimens, these exhibits let you experience first-hand the evolution of Toronto’s ever-changing identity. Through the use of documents, film, photography and objects, you can walk through the timeline of what made Toronto the city it is today – and see where it’s going next.

Alongside talks, tours and workshops, Market Gallery exhibitions provide a taste of the city: past, present and future.
