Designed by Frank Gehry, the building is an exciting one for children of all ages. It took us perhaps one-half hour to get past the front lobby, where she delightfully scampered up and down the ribbon-like wheelchair ramp. Then on to the winding staircase that actually goes outside the building for a few twists and turns.
From up on top of this twisty staircase, when I lifted her up, she could see a panorama view of Toronto.
The staircase, like the wheelchair ramp, was incredibly exciting and we could have spent the rest of the day right here, running up and down, if only my legs could do it!
Then onto the Galeria Italia and where you feel you're in the hold of a glass ship, with enormous trees growing out of it.
This sculpture was created by Italian artist Giuseppe Penone and will only be in the Galeria Italia until January 2012. We were glad to have seen it.
Now on to the Chagall exhibit:
We stayed there maybe 10 or 15 minutes, walking steadily through the exhibit, stopping only to look at the last two very large and colourful paintings. Then on to the really important thing: lunch.
Then home on the GO train where we found a ladybug crawling near our seat on the train.
What a fun day!
