Aga Khan Park & Museum is a surface light rail transit (LRT) stop to be constructed on Line 5 Eglinton, a new line that is part of the Toronto subway system. Destinations nearby include its namesakes, Aga Khan Park and Aga Khan Museum. It is one of three stops on the line with no planned connections to any bus route. The station is scheduled to open in 2021.
The stop will be located in the middle of Eglinton Avenue East, on the west side of the intersection with the southbound ramp from and to the Don Valley Parkway southbound. The stop will have parallel side platforms. Access to the platforms will be via the pedestrian crossing on the west side of the signalized intersection where the ramp crosses Eglinton Avenue.
During the planning stages for Line 5 Eglinton, the stop was given the working name "Ferrand" after the nearby Ferrand Drive. With public consultation, Metrolinx proposed changing the name to "Aga Khan & Eglinton" finally choosing "Aga Khan Park & Museum". Metrolinx said that "The Aga Khan Museum is a highly visible landmark. Naming this surface-level LRT stop [after the museum] provides a unique and self-locating identifier."
