Market Gallery

Old Town, Corktown & Distillery District

The Market Gallery is a tiny museum with rotating exhibits of paintings, photographs, documents and historical relics of Toronto. It's located at St Lawrence Market in what was the council chamber – all that remains of Toronto's first City Hall, which stood here from 1845 to 1899.
