The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains arrives in Toronto, CanadaAnnounced this lunchtime: Toronto has been confirmed as the seventh location to host The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains, the magnificent and critically acclaimed major retrospective of Pink Floyd, their music and the impact the band had on art and culture. Canada sees the exhibition remain on its shores having recently staged it in Montreal.

Following its hugely successful debut at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum in 2017, which saw over 400,000 people attend, the exhibition has subsequently traveled to Italy, Germany, Spain and the United States attracting well over 500,000 people and will now take residency in the cultural hub of Toronto.

The Exhibition opens on Friday, June 16th, 2023, and is being held at the Better Living Centre at Exhibition Place in the city. Tickets go on sale Friday, May 26th at 10am EST. The Better Living Centre should be a good venue for the immersive experiential journey through Pink Floyd's world. The band played in Toronto a number of times, as have the individual members of the band on their solo tours. The exhibition normally runs for a while, and once we have the anticipated closing date, we will update this story.

"After a hugely successful run in Montreal this past year, it was time to bring The Pink Floyd Exhibition to Toronto to rock the summer," said Michael Cohl, Executive Producer of the exhibition and Canadian Promoter of Pink Floyd. "It's only fitting since Pink Floyd has such strong ties to the city, notably the sold-out 1987 shows that launched the next phase of their storied career. I am thrilled to be able to present this exhibition in my hometown where we can all celebrate Pink Floyd's legacy."

"Pink Floyd has an enduring history in Toronto starting with their premiere concert in 1973 at Maple Leaf Gardens; and having performed at Exhibition Stadium seven times during the 80s and 90s," said Darrell Brown, CNE CEO. "The CNE has a rich musical legacy, and we are honoured to be hosting this incredible retrospective on the grounds where many of their most memorable Toronto concerts took place. The CNEA is proud to be part of this extraordinary exhibition that brings the history and music of Pink Floyd in a new light."

To purchase tickets for the exhibition, and for more information, please visit PinkFloydExhibition.com and as before, advance booking is highly recommended as popular times and dates will no doubt sell quickly.

Ticket prices include the excellent audioguide which attendees to previous stagings of the exhibition will know is an extremely well designed facility which will really enhance your visit. Each day of operation the first entry is at midday (12pm) and evening tickets (normally after 6pm) are more expensive. There's also a VIP package available to purchase.

Here are the hours each week that you can visit the exhibition, of which you really need to allocate at least two hours to get around:

  • Monday: Closed
  • Tuesday – Thursday: 12pm to 10pm (last visit)
  • Friday – Saturday: 12pm to 10pm (last visit)
  • Sunday: 12pm to 10pm (last visit)
