Toronto's diverse attractions will keep family entertained over March beak

9 March 2020

At the renowned Aga Khan Museum (AKM), people are greeted by a mesmerizing pop-up performance by musician Amin Reihani playing an Iranian santoor, a kind of hammered dulcimer. Pop-ups feature an array of music played on instruments not often heard in North America. AKM features a stunning design by architect Fumihiko Maki. Across a pond-filled courtyard sits the Ismaili Centre Toronto, a pyramid designed by architect Charles Correa. The tranquil courtyard, known as the Aga Khan Park, is the work of a third architect, Vladimir Djurovic. AKM’s mission is to foster an appreciation of the artistic, intellectual and scientific contributions to the world by Muslim civilisations over the centuries from the Iberian Peninsula to China.
