Inside the Museum — The Market Gallery

Overview

Inside the Museums views Toronto’s heritage museums for the first time as a single community — linked by events, personalities, and function. In this special excerpt we visit The Market Gallery at 95 Front Street East — the upper floor of the famous St. Lawrence Market. Walk into the market’s interior and look back carefully, and you clearly see an earlier building. It is the remains of Toronto’s first purpose-built City Hall. John Goddard takes us on a detailed tour, providing fascinating historical background and insight.
