Read about the outdoor Sculpture Garden walk I took a couple of weeks ago at McMichael Canadian Art Collection in Kleinburg. Even if you don't plan to visit the exhibitions, you can have access to this garden and have a look at the totem in the lobby of the main building.
If you want to visit the collections with your kids, check this page about their Family Sundays (offered on select Sundays). The next one is on September 8th.
A good tip when visiting a museum or an art gallery with kids is to turn it unto a treasure hunt, asking them to find animals, or kids in the artwork.
Chances are, if they're under 8, their favourite part will be the ramps between the floors and the Discovery room.
