"A BREATHTAKING TOUR OF CANADA . . .
IN FOUR ROUND THEATRES!"

METRONOME MUSIC MUSEUM . . . is dramatically located inside fifteen historic grain silos at the edge of Lake Ontario.

Upon arrival, visitors will travel on escalators up through the towering cylinders to an observation deck overlooking Toronto's harbour. Then, descending into the museum, the visitor is plunged into a breathtaking tour of Canada and its music.

360° CircleSound & Vision theatres present a panoramic journey inside Canada's sights and sounds. The cinematic coast-to-coast tour is the "distinctly Canadian" signature attraction, foreshadowing a compelling museum experience and the celebration of a spectrum of music as wide as the country.

The theatres in-the-round anchor exhibit floors celebrating local heroes and famous sons and daughters from Canada's diverse regions: Atlantic Canada, Quebec, Ontario, The Prairies and British Columbia, including a major exhibit honouring the music and art of Canada's First Nations and northern regions.

As visitors depart METRONOME MUSIC MUSEUM and enter MusicLand playground, they have seen Canada and heard its music as never before!
