Date idea: be prepared to only see the Aga Khan Museum as there isn't much else around.

The Aga Khan is located in an area of Toronto which is under development and there are many beautiful architectural buildings around.

If you do need to grab a bite to eat, there is food available in the museum, as well as a museum shop where you may find art prints and unique gifts.

If you're into long hikes / bike rides / or staying fit in general, you could hike / bike along the Don Valley Hike / Bike Trail all the way there.

If you do end up biking, make sure to bring a good pair of bike locks with you.

We don't recommend biking along Eglinton (at the moment of writing this article), as there is a lot of construction and the bike lanes are choppy.

The thought provoking exhibit by Rumi on display now at the Aga Khan Museum in Toronto as well as the Listen display in the infinity pool in front got us thinking how important communication is.

What are your toughts? Let us know on TikTok or Instagram.

We felt really relaxed by the infinity pool and the beautiful music inside the Aga Khan Museum.

Sometimes live performances are held and they are worth visiting.

Finally, you can visit the Aga Khan Museum for free* not only on Wednesday evenings but also if you go to the Toronto Public Library. Find out more in our article: Visit 12 Museums and Cultural Attractions for Free .
