History comes alive at this exhibit. We went with the family who have varying interests and knowledge of Greek Mythology. Everyone enjoyed seeing these beautiful pieces of history right in our own city. the exhibit is well laid out, and you can take as much or as little time as you like in the spacious softly lit galleries.

My first time to the art gallery. It is very impressive. My daughter, an artist, found it to be an excellent experience.

The permanent collection is small and not impressive. Sometimes there are good visiting collections. Recently went to see Greek sculptures on loan from Berlin, that was good. It is a nice place for events, but I wouldn't pay to see the usual collection. The modern art section is terrible.

Well thought out displays, perfect continuity throughout. Olympus exhibit a must see. One of the nicest museums for art I've seen. Well worth the time and money.

The gallery is nice but rather small. Based on the information about the Inuit art, I expected to see much more. Was there for the special Olympia exhibit which was very well put together. Great location and easy to access.

Lovely gallery with both static and temporary exhibits, plus a great gift shop with a terrific selection of art, pottery, books, cards, and jewellery by local artisans. You can visit the gift shop for free, but must pay to see the galleries.

The art gallery is ever changing and they do a great job bringing in new exhibits. My favourite event they host is the playing of the Cannes Commercial festival. You get to watch on average 100 commercials from around the world that were chosen of the best for that year. It is a great time with lots of laughs. Nice... More
