Tel: 416 586 8000's insider take:

This museum's renowned collection is centered on natural history and world culture—don't miss the archaeological exhibits and the Bat Cave—but lately it has played second fiddle to its notorious renovation. Known as the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal, this 50,000-square-foot eruption of jutting angles, sharp points, and mathematical planes is the work of famed architect Daniel Libeskind. Thrusting out over Bloor Street, this deconstructivist work of architecture has divided critics across the board. Come for the design, stay for the dinosaur skeletons.

Open Mondays through Thursdays 10 am to 5:30 pm, Fridays 10 am to 9:30 pm, and Saturdays and Sundays 10 am to 5:30 pm.
