Portrait Tour



Osgoode Hall has been delighting visitors since the mid-19th century. Architecture is the main draw, but its portrait collection, which has grown steadily since 1846, is part of its appeal. Although the collection started as a tribute to individual Chief Justices of the province and Treasurers of the Law Society of Ontario, it now constitutes an invaluable record of Ontario’s history.

The collection, owned by the Law Society of Ontario, consists of over 100 paintings and a number of sculptures, drawings and prints. This tour samples representative works that will allow you to understand the collection.

The tour starts in the atrium, just past the main doors. An internet connection is not required once the tour has been downloaded.

Please note that as Osgoode Hall is a busy office building and courthouse, access to tour locations may be subject to change without notice.
