The Lord Beaverbrook is a great small gallery that offers exhibits ranging from classic art to modern. The collections are always unique and interesting. The smaller size means you can tour the gallery in a couple of hours at a very reasionable price. We have visited several times and are never disappointed!

I feel that it was interesting, but as I've not much patience for art and can only appreciate art pieces rather superficially, I didn't enjoy it as much as others probably would. The key exhibition was rather pretty and interesting and was my favorite part of the whole art gallery that day. Overall, it was a rather pleasant way to... More

I wasn't impressed, one section was closed for overhaul. The only section I really liked was the abstrract exhibit and the permanent Kreighoff collection.

We had hoped to see a number of quality paintings from the permanent collection only to learn that only a very small portion of the permanent collection was displayed in order to provide space for other exhibits. One exhibit of different unusually artistic keys to imaginary locks was very good and made our visit worthwhile.

I always enjoy going to this Art Gallery while in Fredericton. There is always something new to see although I missed the old masters that are on loan this year but hopefully they will be back next time I visit. It is worth the visit.

Our "quick" visit to the gallery turned into a couple hours. We were amazed at the volume of excellent pieces that were on display. Brilliant staff and beautiful interior. Highly recommend a visit but leave time to enjoy the space & its works.

too bad management had to "chop" up the beautiful large galleries and make it look like some small private gallery.

I was told major part of the collection is on tour. What they have on display is very disappointing. I'm an art lover who loves spending hours to days in Museums, but even on a free evening, this museum was a waste of time with barely anything to entertain you for more than 30 min. I even say the metallic... More

Fredericton is beautiful. People were friendly and outgoing, the streets easy to ramble. We enjoyed the music in officer's square and the Beaverbrook Art Gallery. The gallery was small but lovely, the Off the Grid collection really fun and absorbing.
