Ten of Toronto

What do ten neighbourhoods tell us about who we are?

Toronto is vast and diverse in people, places, and experiences. With 2.8 million of us who call this dynamic city home, we explore what it means to call Toronto a “city of neighbourhoods” through the lens of 10 distinct communities and themes.

In Ten of Toronto, we reflect on our shared histories by looking at the forces that have shaped the city’s neighbourhoods: geography, economy, immigration, finance, urban development, culture, inequality, and social values.

Join us, steal away, and stay awhile. We invite you to discover your own path through the stories and histories we’ve unearthed for this exhibit, and lend your voice – what do neighborhoods mean to you?

Health and safety precautions remain in place, and the museum asks that visitors who feel unwell postpone their visit. All Myseum employees and volunteers are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

DIRECTIONS:
The Myseum Space is located just through the north-east entrance of 401 Richmond, nearest to the intersection of Richmond St W and Peter St. If you enter through the north-west entrance nearest to Spadina Ave, follow the arrows that lead to the Spacing Store or Swipe Design, as our space is right next to theirs.

401 Richmond can be accessed by TTC by taking the 510 Spadina streetcar from Spadina subway station or Union Station, or the 501 Queen streetcar.

By car:
There is no visitor parking onsite, but there are a number of parking lots in the immediate area.

By bike:
The building is easily accessed via the Adelaide bike lane running east, or the Richmond bike lane running west. There are bike racks at both the front and back entrances of the building.

ACCESSIBILITY:
The Myseum Space:
There are no stairs inside the Myseum space. It is accessible to mobility devices and service animals are allowed.

The north-east entrance nearest to Myseum is at street-level and there is a ramp inside the doors that leads down to the floor level. Myseum is located immediately to the left of the ramp.

The 401 Richmond Building:
There is a fully accessible washroom located on the fourth floor close to the commons and the rooftop doors. There is a gender neutral washroom on the first floor across from Open Studio (104); this washroom does not meet all accessibility standards (no handrails or automatic doors), but it is significantly larger than other stall washrooms in the building. There is a passenger elevator located in the middle of the building.

We have copies of our exhibit text in large print available.
