Architecture and art[edit]

Ceramic tile mural displayed in the station mezzanine

The station is in a bored tunnel, and it is one of only two stations in the system to have a tubular shape, the other being the next station south at St. Patrick. North of the station, the tunnel curves east around the Ontario Legislative Building, then comes back to its original alignment centred under the road just before Museum Station

A ceramic tile mural, a gift from the Government of Portugal,[5] is located within the fare-paid area of the mezzanine. The mural features subject matter inspired by Portuguese exploration of the New World. It was designed by Ana Vilel, manufactured by Viúva Lamego in Lisbon and installed here in 2003.
